Literature

Hugo E. Kreijger, Kathmandu Valley Painting, The Jucker Collection, Boston, 1999, p. 50, no. 12.

Catalogue Note

The fragmentary paubha would have extended, probably in a continuous horizontal format, to depict the complete group of eight Mother Goddesses, the Astamatrika. Compare scrollwork and the style of the deities within the miniature roundels with a Mahakala dated 1577; see Pal, 1978, pl. 103.
