Stone slab with a relief carving of the historical Buddha Shakyamuni born about 2500 years ago 

The Buddha is seated in the diamond attitude (vajraparyankasana) on a single lotus pedestal. He rests the left hand in the lap while the right hand is raised in the gesture of fearlessness (abhaya-mudra).

The custom of engraving rock-cliffs, stone boulders, and stone slabs is a very ancient tradition on the Tibetan plateau.
