Votive painting with four standing figures of Avalokiteśvara in the upper register, each identified in a cartouche, dressed in the Indian style. Below are Samantabhadra on an elephant and Mañjuśrī on a lion, accompanied by bodhisattvas in flowing Chinese-style dress, carrying three-tiered canopies. At the bottom, donor figures, all from the same family (Tang) and a central inscription. Ink and colours on silk.
