  Ajita (Pindola Bharadvaja)

 

Thailand

Statue of the arahat Ajita riding a deer, his mount of choice when he appeared in front of the palace, to convince the local king to join him to become a monk.

 

However, in art Ajita is often switched with Pindola Bharadvaja, an arahat who is shown with long eyebrows. Thus, if Pindola is depicted on or with the deer, then Ajita has long eyebrows, and vice versa.
