A set of paintings depicting the life story of Shakyamuni Buddha with possibly nine or eleven compositions in total. In the composition of Shakyamuni defeating the Maras the central Buddha figure is much larger than in the other compositions. This painting is very likely to be the central, or main, composition of the set.
