A possibly complete set of thirty-one Avadana paintings in the New Menri painting style. The one hundred and eight stories are based on the Leaves of the Heaven Tree a text composed by the Kashmiri poet Kshemendra (11th century). That text in turn is based on the Avadana stories from the Buddhist Pali canon of authoritative Buddhist scripture.
