Woodblock print, on hand-made paper probably from the daphne bush, of the type made for prayer-flags. Ink made of soot from an oil lamp. In the centre is the 'wind horse' carrying flaming jewels. At the corners are the canonical Four Protective Animals (clockwise from top left) - garuda (with snakes), dragon, tiger and snow lion. Between the images are invocatory texts in Tibetan and small auspicious symbols; at the top is the Banner of Victory.
