The four-armed Durga sits on a stylized crouching lion with her right leg pendant and the left one across her body.  Her front right hand extends down with palm outwards in a boon giving gesture while the back right hand holds a sword.  Her left font hand holds a fruit or flower bud while her back left hand holds a shield. The whole is simply carved with rather subdued jewelry, but she does wear necklaces, bracelets, armlets and loose anklets as well as large circular earrings and a diadem across her forehead.  Her hair is arranged behind the diadem. The stele is subtly pointed and its only decoration is a band along the outside, although a throne is suggested at her knees.  A highly stylized lotus supports her right foot at the base.<br />

Parvati stands on a tiny base with little feet in a strict unbending stance.  The body is elongated with a small waist, the hips billowing out and tapering in a stylized way to the feet.  He has broad shoulders, pointy breasts that fall quite low in the chest and has two arms holding a bowl in her right one and a lotus flower in her left.  She wears a d simple tight fitting skirt decorated with incised lines and a corded belt that falls down the center of her body with five rows of cords falling from the center and wrapping around her legs creating a fishbone pattern.  She wears necklaces with added pendants on her shoulders and her coiffure is tied in a chignon on the right side at the back of her head wearing a headdress that has decorations that cascade down both shoulders.  Like the accompanying Shiva figure she has large eyes and what appear to be two sets of eyebrows, but the tikka on her forehead is of a flame shape.<br />

This column fragment consists of a base with a seated jina in the center with a tiered umbrella above him under an elaborate arch flanked by two figures to either side—two male and dancing females at the outside.  Three virtually identical bands above it represent smaller seated jinas in less elaborate pavilions.  A pair of male cauri bearers with a devotional male on the outside flanks each of the two central figures.  The top figure is flanked by the pair of cauri bearers, but with an elephant surmounted by a lion figure on either side.   There is no cognizance present to identify any of the four jinas, all are depicted in lotus position and their hands in dhyana mudra, a meditation gesture.   <br />
