This photograph showing sculpture fragments was taken by Joseph David Beglar in the 1870s. The sculptures were located in the Bihar museum and the photograph is part of the Archaeological Survey of India Collections. A note written by Bloch reads, "The sculptures photographed while exhibited in the Bihar Museum were collected from various places in Bihar, and are now in the Indian Museum. A paper by Mr Broadley, dealing with this collection, was published in Journal of the Asiatic Society of Bengal, vol. XLI, part I, 1872, pp. 209-311." Aditya is depicted on the left slab whilst Buddha can be seen in a reclining position on the right sculpture. There are also two architectural sculptures shown in the photograph .
