Mathura Buddha Image of the Time of Kumaragupta I

A broken sandstone image of which only the pedestal and the feet remain, and which appears to be a standing Buddha. Dimensions are of the extant portion (and I'm not sure which figure goes for which dimension as neither Srivastava nor Agrawala specify this). The proper right portion of the pedestal is broken away.
