Divine Beings

Divine Beings
18th Century, Joseon Dynasty, color on silk. This painting of Divine Beings seems to have formed a pair with a painting of Indro. In the upper register of the painting is Skanda with singed helmet. The introduction of Skanda marked a turning point in the development of portrayal of guardians. Separated from other deities by clouds, Skanda is relatively small and keeps aloof from the crowd.

Skanda is a Mahayana bodhisattva regarded as a devoted guardian of Buddhist monasteries who guards the Buddhist teachings.
