About this work
In the centre is the Buddha Akṣobhya, with his right hand forming the earth-touching gesture, his left hand in meditation gesture, and with a vajra (thunderbolt) poised on his flat left hand. He is seated in meditation-posture. His halo and body-nimbus are green. He is wearing a dark orange outer robe and a light orange inner robe. In front of him is a dish of jewels flanked by two white elephants. He is surrounded by six hundred and ten replicas of himself, all in monk's robes, holding the vajra in their left palm. Some are wearing dark orange robes, some light orange, and their body-nimbuses have different colours
The top of the dark blue damask has a gold brocade inset representing a dragon, the bottom of the brocade has a gold brocade inset representing a lion
