    Option 4 is the right answer.

    The Lion capital of ashoka is a sandstone sculpture of four Indian lions standing back to back . It is the official symbol of India. It was originally placed on the top of Famous Ashoka Pliiar in Sarnath by Empror Ashoka.

    It features four Asiatic Lions standing back to back. The whole sits upon a bell-shaped lotus. The capital was originally probably crowned by a ‘Wheel of Dharma’  with 24 spokes, of which a few fragments were found on the site.  The wheel on the capital, below the lions, is the model for the one in the flag of India.
