This broken fragment depicts a now headless goddess or yakshi standing with a much smaller male attendant.  She wears a necklace, bracelets and a girdle consisting of three rows of small round shapes.  She stands with her left hand at her waist and the right hand next to the head of her attendant.  He wears a turban and large earrings and a belt of a single line of round shapes.  They both wear diaphanous lower garments that make them appear nude with both of them with their genitals exposed.  The fragment is broken above the male figure’s knees and below the yakshi’s knees.  <br />
