Collection of AMNH: Arhat Set (Standing)

Arhat Set (Standing) | American Museum of Natural History | Arhat Main Page

It is not clear whether this set is of the sixteen Elders or of the much greater set of Five Hundred Elders (Lohan) - popular in the Chinese Buddhist system. Shakyamuni Buddha, Shariputra, Maudgalyayana and the Four Guardian Kings are missing from this set.
