The red and gold pieces combination make a striking picture on my bare walls. I thought they were wooden carvings that were part of the Chinese Bridal Beds but the carvings showed a different picture.
On closer look, the picture seems to tell a popular story of the Chinese folklore tales of the 8 Immortals or perhaps some activities of the 18 Lohans. (See Below)
An Arahant, or Lohan in Chinese, is one who has attained Enlightenment. The term "Arahant" is often used in Hinayana Buddhism. In Mahayana Buddhism, one who has attained Enlightenment is called a Buddha. The term "Lohan" is often used in Chinese Buddhism to denote a disciple who learned directly from the Buddha.
