Painting showing Kṣitigarbha in the centre, seated on a rock under a canopy, holding a staff and a cintamani (flaming jewel). At the two sides are the Ten Kings of Hell, each one seated behind a desk like a magistrate, flanked by assistants. Before the Bodhisattva stands the monk Daoming with his lion, and an ox-headed jailor leading the soul of a man wearing a cangue, who is viewing his sins in a mirror. Blank cartouches stand on alternate sides of the Ten Kings. Two inscribed cartouches at the side of the figure of Daoming. In the bottom section, donor figures kneeling at the sides of a central blank panel. Ink and colours on silk.
