Banner showing the seven treasures of the cakravartin (world sovereign): golden wheel, jewel, coffer, general, lady, elephant and horse. The general carries a banner inscribed "zuo yi jiang" (first general of the left). Below the treasures are two scenes from the Life of the Buddha: the bathing of the newborn Śākyamuni in Lumbini Garden and his first steps. Blank cartouches on alternate sides of the scenes. Ink and colours on silk.
