It is likely that most of these paintings below are the central subjects for larger sets of paintings that portray Shakyamuni Buddha and the sixteen arhats. The paintings have been selected from various collections because they each have the two disciples, Shariputra and Maudgalyayana, standing at the right and left sides of Shakyamuni Buddha. All depictions of the Buddha and sixteen arhats also include these two students.
