Footnotes

  • This beautiful large painting places Buddha in the middle of a mountainous landscape, with attendants and monks to each side, a lively heaven scene above, and groups of worshipers and deities below. Landscape elements - trees, waters, and rocks - are meticulously rendered with a primitive sense of realism.

    The present lot is possibly part of a thangka set depicting the seven earthly Buddhas, with the current painting representing Shikhi, and six others depicting Vipashyin, Vishvabhu, Krakucchanda, Kanakamuni, Kashyapa, and Shakyamuni. Refer to a seven Buddhas thangka set in the Palace Museum collection, see Gu gong bo wu yuan cang wen wu zhen pin quan ji: Zang chuan fo jiao tang ka, Hong Kong, 2003, pp.99-105, nos.89-95.
