Several separate prints are arranged on this textile. The central figure is the golden Buddha Shakyamuni, sitting in deep meditation on a lotus flower. His right hand touches the earth and his left shows the gesture of meditation. An alms-bowl is placed in front of him. The upper half of this print is very darkened, making an definite identification impossible. The four guardians of directions are printed at the bottom.
