Painting. Vaishravana Riding a Lion Mandala. 8 gates guarded by 8 Yaksha marshals (one displaced so he can be seen). Naga king and secular human ruler, lesser nagas at sides presenting offerings. Three walls around the palace, with armed guards. Around the outside, jewel trees, coral trees, horses and yaks. Above: two rows of Red Lama saints and dignitaries. Below: 8 precious things and the seven jewels. Subtitles in Tibetan script make this especially interesting. Elaborate chorten, stupa, drawn on back.
