Description
Maitreya is the last in the line of the historical Buddhas, who, it is believed, will be reborn in the future. Depicted in a seated position, this bodhisattva is identifiable by the flask held in his left hand. In the frieze below Maitreya there are two donor figures who kneel either side of a lit fire. - (SF.057)
