The Eighteen Arhats are lohans depicted in Mahayana Buddhism as the original followers of the Buddha who have followed the Eightfold Path and attained the highest state of peace and enlightenment. They are charged to protect the Buddhist faith and to await on earth for the coming of Maitreya, a prophesied enlightened Buddha.
In China, the Eighteen Arhats are a popular subject in Buddhist art, such as the famous Chinese group of glazed pottery luohans from Yixian of about 1000.
