This Gandharan schist panel depicts Buddha's First sermon. After attaining enlightenment, Buddha was rejoined by his ashamed devotees who had previously abandoned him when he became an ascetic. In the Deer Park at Sarnath he thus gave his first teachings. The stylised foliage and the recumbent deer at the far right emphasise the setting.
