“First illustration of Fire Lance And a Grenade, 10th Century, Dunhuang. Appears to be a detail from an illustration of Sakyamuni's temptation by Maurya, with the demons at upper right threatening with the fire lance and other weapons while those at lower right tempt with pleasures.” [image source 2010-02-08 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:FireLanceAndGrenade10thCenturyDunhuang.jpg ]
