Rare Burmese Andagu Stone Reclining Buddha depicting the Buddha in pari-nirvana (dying), with eight praying disciples underneath the Buddha, and two of his chief disciples, Moggallana and Upatissa also referred to as Sariputta, kneeling in prayer on either end.

The couch on which the Buddha is lying, is decorated with medallions on each end, with a single medallion decorating his pillow, and two larger medallions underneath. Lotus petals decorate the back of the couch and again across the bottom of the couch with a stupa-like structure in the centre. The Buddha in pari-nirvana is in the Pagan style as are the attendants underneath, all wearing medallion-style earrings and a simple monk’s robe.

This andagu stone carving deviates from the more traditional style of andagu stone Pagan stele seen here.
