Ink, color, and gold on bodhi leaves. An album of 12 Bodhi leaf paintings, beginning with two images of paired guardian figures (the four kings), followed by eight paintings of lohan, a picture of the white-robed Guanyin, and another guardian. Although this painting is in an elaborated mount, with high-quality brocade and a Qing dynasty imperial inscription attributing it the famed painter Ding Yunpeng (1547-1628), it is most likely a late 19th century product.
