Extremely Rare Buddhist Stone Stele Maitreya Buddha sourced from Burma, with hand gesture in dharmachakra pravartana mudra, also known as the gesture of teaching, depicting the Buddha’s first sermon in Sarnath after attaining enlightenment.

The Maitreya Buddha in this stele is seated with both legs pendant with feet resting on a double lotus pedestal. This posture is also referred to as European fashion and a single halo frames the head. The Maitreya is flanked on either side by what would appear to be figures of lions. Lions are depicted in Burmese Buddhist iconography and art dating to the Pagan Dynasty and are a feature on the Burmese lion throne used by Burmese monarchs.
