Painting Set: Eighty-four Mahasiddhas (Milarepa & Tsongkapa)

A painting set depicting a large central figure in each composition with at least six of the Eighty-four Mahasiddhas per composition. In working out the numbers of mahasiddhas and the number of compositions then this should be a fifteen painting set. Five of the compositions depict the Five Forms of Tsongkapa. The Milarepa figure at the center of the second painting indicates that it is most likely the other compositions would depict a random selection of famous Tibetan religious teachers.
