The Eight Hosts of Deva, Naga, and Yakshi, 1454. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

The Eight Hosts of Deva, Naga, and Yakshi, 1454. Creator: Unknown

The Eight Hosts of Deva, Naga, and Yakshi, 1454. The grandest of the Buddhist mortuary rites is the Water-Land ( shuilu ) ritual. This esoteric ceremony is conducted for the salvation of "all souls of the dead on land and sea." The ostentatious ritual was performed for imperial ancestors and high officials from the Song (960-1279) to the Ming dynasties and drew large crowds. On the second day of the weeklong ceremony, paintings are hung in the inner altar. This scroll represents the Eight Hosts of Celestial Nagas and Yakshis as described in the Lotus Sutra . Together with the scroll nearby, it belongs to a set of 36 Water-Land ritual paintings that are the finest works of their types known from the Ming period. With their bright, opaque colour and fine-line gilt decoration intact and unfaded, both paintings share a remarkable state of preservation.
