Subject:16 arhat: who painted this curious scroll?
Posted By: ger Sat, Oct 23, 2021 IP: 2001:981:8626:1:e535

Please see this curious scroll depicting the 16 arhat.
Would it be possible to find the artist? What does the text say?
In the first picture:
lid interior text + scroll text + seal at the bottom + lid exterior text.
Thanks for your help.
