This print probably shows the 2nd Panchen Lama Lozang yeshé (Tib. Blo bzang ye shes, 1663-1737). He is surrounded by Manjushri and Amitayus (above) and Shridevi Remati and Begtse (below). In the inscription written at the bottom of this print, hommage is paid to Shridevi Remati, the noble monk Lozang yeshé and Begtse, reading: “dpal ldan re ma ti la na mah rje btsun blo bzang ye shes la na mah chos rgyal be gtse can la na mah.” Furthermore, it is stated that this print was designed by this very noble monk depicted on this image, reading “sku par ’di rje rang nyid kyi phyag nas brgya rtsa ma’o.”
