P.O.R.

Large, very expressive scroll painting of a luohan holding up the sacred jewel in his left hand and running. He looks up over his shoulder at a dragon in the sky that chases him and that stretches out its claws toward the jewel. On the upper right side the name of the luohan (not identified, although he should be handaka sonja) and two seals. Nice and bold brushstroke. Black ink and color on paper. Painted surface: h 54 ; w 29 3/8 inches. China, 18th century. Professional restoration of some old cracks, due to rolling, few missing areas restored. Very good condition.
