Comments The later type of the so-called "3-swami" pagoda shows the figures three-quarter length, on a relatively broader flan than the early type. On this specimen, the figures are placed a little lower on the flan than normal, which has the virtue of revealing the row of dots representing a canopy over the deities ... a SUPERB specimen!
