|Another frieze from
the same ruins, having five panels, shows Rama and Lakshmana seated, the latter behind the
former, while Sugriva is kneeling before Rama in supplication, and Hanuman and another
monkey are watching the scene with
reverence. The scene portrayed evidently relates to the incident from the Ramayana, in
which Hanuman succeeded in securing the friendship of Rama for the protection of Sugriva.
Another frieze found in the same place represents the well-known scene from the
Mahabharata, namely, the Garuda-garvabhanga, or the extermination of Garuda's pride*7.
