This small thangka depicts Buddha Shakyamuni seated on a rectangular pedestal supported by a pair of lions (simhasana). Shakyamuni is attended by his two main disciples Sariputra and Maudgalyayana. The disciple on the right offers a crown to Shakyamuni. The throne back is supported by two pillars crowned with parrots. Above the crossbeam is amakaratorana with prominent scrolling tails. This painting forms part of a group depicting various Buddhist deities.
