Two of the Sixteen Arhats. At the top is the seventh in the group, Kanakavatsa, and below that is the ninth, Bakula.
 "In the excellent land of Kashmir is the noble elder Kanakavatsa, surrounded by five hundred arhats; homage to the one holding a jewel lasso."
 "On the northern [continent] of Kuru is the noble elder Bakula, surrounded by nine hundred arhats; homage to the one holding a mongoose with the two hands." (Buddhist liturgical verse).
