Fragmentary stucco figure of a male deity, probably a Bodhisattva. The figure has a serene facial expression and hair which is drawn loosely back under a fillet made of alternating plain and beaded bands. The topknot of the hairstyle is broken off. He wears an armlet with a flower-shaped decoration on the right upper arm and two beaded bands around the chest. These are decorated with a rosette in the centre. Behind the figure, the remains of a cloak are visible. While the body was made using a mould, the jewellery was moulded and applied separately.
