The names of the donors mentioned in the inscription are now largely obliterated. However, it does record that they were three brothers and that they had the painting made in honour of their deceased parents in samvat 679 (1559). Compare a Nepalese paubha dated 1561 depicting the assault of Mara’s horde on the meditating Shakyamuni, now in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; see Pal, 1975, p. 27, no. 4.
