Shakyamuni Buddha and the Thirty-five Confession Buddhas from the Mahayana Buddhist Confession Sutra according to the Ludrub (Nagarjuna) iconographic system. This is a single composition and does not belong to a set of paintings. The Nageshvara Raja depiction, at the top left, blue in colour with a white face, follows the Tsongkapa system of depiction. There might also be other variations with a few of the Buddha depictions.
