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 Shariputra and Maudgalyayana. The disciple on the right offers a crown to Shakyamuni. Columns with leafy decorations, with parrots resting on them, support a large arch of stylized lotus scrolls in the nepalese style. This painting forms part of a group depicting various Buddhist deities.
