Hell Main Page | Hell Outline Page

A set of painted cards on rough paper with various hell scenes and torture depicted. Two of the images were previously uploaded to the HAR website. The set must have been created for some ritual use as each card is also numbered on the back, however it is difficult to say how many cards there were in total. Hell depictions were especially popular in Mongolia where most of the best sets of hell depictions are found.
