Description

Painting. Sakyamuni Buddha with two more luohan and the four deva kings. 51-4-139 to 153 are a set showing Sakyamuni Buddha in different aspects. Extremely interesting set, with long inscriptions and pagodas on the back of each painting. (Although mounted alike, internal evidence suggests more than one set here).
