REN Pingshan;School of Architecture and Design, Southwest Jiaotong University;  
This paper studied a special type of Buddha's life story painting found in the Qiuci( Kucha)caves. In the center of the paintings Buddha preaches to the bhiksu, a crouching cow and a piece of hide by his side. By analyzing the images and relevant scriptures, the author considers that the painting represents a story conveying Buddhist precepts, namely "asking for a calf's hide."
