Artwork Image
In the painting, there are two Arhats surfing on the wave; one riding on a big fish and the other one riding on a wave. The Arhat in the front is painted with curvy hair and beard in a cape and the figure on the left looks like a Chinese monk. The figures, fish and waves are rendered in fine-line technique called bai-miao in Chinese painting. The painting is in the monochromatic style of Li Gonglin (1049-1106).
