Description

Painting. Sakyamuni as a Bodhisattva ( or possibly as a prince, Jowo Rinpoche ), with two of the Luohans, and other attendants in the form of monks, laymen, Brahma, etc. 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).
