漁人求度 - Fishermen asking for being saved

The No. 87. story from the Balapandita-sutta, stories about how Shakyamuni was preaching about the karmas, good and evil and luck while travelling with Bhikkus and disciples. This story is about how the fishermen who caught a big fish have been enlighted by Shakyamuni about the karma of the big fish, and so all of them became monks and performed sacred practices.
It is difficult to guesstimate the age of the print. The block itself could have been much older e.g. from the late Ming Dynasty.

With regards,
