A number of extant Tang dynasty altar groups are known, many of which have been subjected to some degree of alteration or replacement to the figures. Two mid-Tang period examples in the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco are illustrated in René-Yvon Lefebvre d'Argencé, Chinese, Korean and Japanese Sculpture in The Avery Brundage Collection, Tokyo, 1974, pls 92-93. Compare another altar in the Seattle Asian Art Museum, illustrated in Hugo Munsterberg, Chinese Buddhist Bronzes, Tokyo, 1967, pl. 119, which the author suggests is assembled.
