Did you know?

A book on a blue lotus is just over the left shoulder of the Bodhisattva of Wisdom, Manjushri.

Description

The Bodhisattvas of Wisdom and Compassion sit in majesty, with Manjushri in the preaching gesture in the center, being honored by two worshipers. His mandorla dances with flames, and tongues of flames encircle its border. Two different forms of Avalokiteshvara are in the flanking paintings, a two-armed and a four-armed form.
