Rare Burmese Bronze Pagan Buddhist Shrine showing the Buddha with hand gesture in Bhumisparsa Mudra, “Earth touching mudra”, dressed in a simple monks robe, flanked by his two chief disciples Moggallana and Upatissa, also referred to as Sariputta. Both attendants kneel in reverence to the Buddha seated in the centre on a single lotus pedestal on top of a two tiered throne, with three praying disciples standing at the foot of the shrine.
