dc.description.abstract Shakyamuni Buddha, the sage of the Shakya clan, is seated in the midst of scenes from his final, historical life. The golden-skinned Buddha touches the earth with his right hand, a traditional gesture signifying the moment of his enlightenment. In his left hand he holds a begging bowl filled with rice shaped into a relic mound (stupa). Fourteen vignettes around the primeter of the painting depict the life of the Buddha as a mortal, beginning at the top and proceeding in a clockwise direction.
