The list of donors of the Liao dynasty dharani pillar (陀羅尼經幢) at Yunju Temple (雲居寺) 1 Van Cutsem, Laurent; Luo, Yuqing


This side shows the names and backgrounds of the donors of the dharani pillar.These donors usually are grouped together by families. The donors include chestnut manor owner, a sutra scribe, military officials,and common folks of the Zheng Village(鄭邑). The donors' names seemed to be carved by different people, because the fonts and styles of the names vary. The first one is a picture of the whole face [1]; the second is the picture of the top [2]; the remaining images are the detailed pictures from top to base.
