'The small fragment at the upper left is part of a small circular frieze representing ascetics. The three surrounding pieces represent Buddha and his disciples. The two lower carvings are terminals with boys, on lions, pulling their tails. I afterwards found the centre piece representing a boy mounted on a standing lion.'
