Description In the kingdom of Haripunjaya (northern Thailand), Buddhist monuments were constructed in the form of stepped pyramids. On each story, there were three niches, each holding an image of the Buddha. This sculpture may have come from such a monument. The sculptors of Haripunjaya were influenced both by the traditions of the Dvaravati period and by contemporary developments in neighboring Burma.
