The mural depicts Nanda's reluctant separation with his wife, who was forced to become a monk by his brother the Buddha and had to leave his beloved wife. His wife, holding back tears, was trying to hide her sadness by turning her head to the side. The mural is located on the north wall of Cave No 254.
