Tabo, skor lam: north wall, middle section

Two rows of seven Bodhisattvas each are depicted on the south and north walls of the Ambulatory. To this group four more Bodhisattvas in the corners of the east wall have to be added as they belong to a group. Following the captions, the 32 Bodhisattvas are divided into two groups of 16 Bodhisattvas (BS) and 16 Mahābodhisattvas (MBS). The BS are placed in the upper level, the MBS below them. For neither of the groups has the source been identified by now. Iconographically the 32 Bodhisattvas can also be grouped by their respective body colours: blue and white on the south wall, red and green on the north wall (Luczanits 1999: 148).
