Legend has it that the first portraits of the 18 Lohans were painted by a Buddhist

monk Guan Xiu, in 891 A.D. Guan Xiu lived in Chengdu, the capital of a small

kingdom, the Former Shu, formed at the decline of the Tang Dynasty in what is

today's Sichuan Province. He was adept at the scholarly pursuits of painting,

calligraphy and poetry.
