Solution

The correct option is A Sarnath Lion Capital
The Mauryan period dating back to 2200 years ago witnessed King Ashoka setting up tall polished pillars made out of a single piece of stone. Ashoka had his messages inscribed on them. He also had animal figures installed on top of them. Sarnath Lion Capital is one such example which resembles the most to that of Anshul's artwork.
