More about this Print: An Arhat, an enlightened Buddist monk, sitting on a rock, catches seeds from the eight cassia trees on the moon. Because of their quality of perpetual renewal, the trees produce seeds that are thought to have magical properties. The halo around the monk's shaven head doubles as moon.
