Lot Essay

The shrine-like composition of the present work, with the main jina centered within a neat arrangement of the 23 remaining jinas and other figures, is a popular Jain configuration for devotional sculpture also known as the Caturvimsati-patta. The jinas are surrounded by flywhisk bearers, griffins, and makara heads, while the base is lined with musicians, donor figures, representations of the nine planets, and the goddess of peace Santidevi at below center.
