1800 - 1899
Four pages of accordion style manuscript joined by folds in khoi paper and reinforced with white tape. White khoi paper written in Thai (Khom/Khmer) in black ink on each side of the four pages, 8-10 lines per folio, folded concertina- or accordion-style. There are four paintings within the four pages, each on one end of two pages. The paintings are a small assembly with two crowned figures at the center, a stupa, Buddha's death, and a monk with bowl at the river. This may be part of a Phra Malai manuscript. Manuscript illustrated with images of monks.
