The Eight Hosts of Deva, Naga, and Yakshi, 1454. Creator: Unknown Featured 10 Oct 2019 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

Layla and Majnun in the wilderness with animals, from a Khamsa (Quintet)..., c. 1590-1600 Featured 10 Oct 2019 Print

Layla and Majnun in the wilderness with animals, from a Khamsa (Quintet)..., c. 1590-1600

Layla and Majnun in the wilderness with animals, from a Khamsa (Quintet) of Amir Khusrau Dihlavi, c. 1590-1600. Nestled in the multicoloured rocks are the reunited lovers Layla and Majnun, forced by society to remain separated for years. Majnun's name means "madman," since the separation drove him past the brink of sanity. Exiling himself to the wilderness, he became emaciated. When Layla found him after a prophetic dream, the wild animals gathered around, drawn to the purity and depth of their love. This painting illustrates a version of the story as told by an Indian author who wrote in Persian. He altered the ending given by previous Persian authors to the ancient Bedouin tale that originated among nomadic tribes of the Arabian Peninsula, in which Layla dies before the couple can be physically reunited
