The paubha depicting a temple complex with Prajnaparmita, Buddha and Shadakshari Avalokiteshvara seated within the portals of the principal three-tiered temple, attended by two monks and surrounded by lesser temples and a multitude of Buddhist and Hindu deities, further temples above, with narrative episodes to the sides and above with an upper register of Manushibuddhas, the lower register now missing.
Hugo E. Kreijger, Kathmandu Valley Painting, The Jucker Collection, Boston, 1999, p. 58, no. 16.
Seventeenth and eighteenth century Rajput paintings have influenced the style of the narrative scenes surrounding the shrine, evident in the mannered gestures of the turbaned figures and domed palace roofs. Compare the mountain design dividing the narrative scenes in a Vishnu Temple paubha, dated 1681, now in the Prince of Wales Museum, Mumbai; see Pal, 1978, pl. 115.
