Rahula, the Buddha's son. Rahula has a number of different ways in which he is depicted. The most common depiction in Tibetan art is for him to be holding up a jeweled crown with both hands. Chinese depictions often have him holding a staff in one hand and a tiger or lion seated at his feet.
At the top center is Amitayus Buddha is Sambhogakaya appearance. Below that are two buddha figures in Nirmanakaya appearance.
