Description

Painting. Sakyamuni Buddha and the Seven Buddhas of the Past (?) with the Deva Kings of the North and West. 51-4-139 to 51-4-153 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).
