Visual Description : Black and white print of Milrepa and Tibetan Saints. The entire composition is enclosed by a thick double-lined border. The print is limited to flat linework only; there are no areas of shading or depth. The figures are rendered in contemplative postions. Other images that appear in the print include those of animals (native to Tibet?), plants and flowers, mountains, clouds, a sun, and a moon. The print also makes use of decorative linework and ambiguous shapes. Underneath each figure appears short captions of unknown text; presumably Tibetan.
