Description

Tibetan painting. Sakyamuni Buddha with two more Luohans. Strange headdresses on the green women (repeated in others of this set) which might be a help in locating the place of origin. Part of a set 51-4-139 to 153 of Sakyamuni Buddha in different aspects. Long inscription with pagoda on back of each. All mounted alike but maybe more than one set according to internal evidence.
