Description

Painting. Ushnishavijaya with two attendants (not readily identifiable), two Nagas pouring down holy water from above. Four unidentified Dharmapala in the corners, holding mace, vajra, sword and goad. These six unidentified attendants are all shown in 51-4-134 and they are labelled, but the names are written in a cursive Tibetan almost impossible to decipher. Painting not typical of East Tibet.
