Description Mahavira was the 24th and last tirthankara of Jainism.  A tirthankara is someone who helps people on the path to enlightenment as an arihant or Jain holy figure. In this sculpture Mahavira is captured with his hands clasp together in an attitude of meditation.  There is a diamond shape on his bare chest that is typical of tirthankaras.  Above him is a palanquin with figures of devotees including two figures on elephants.  Surrounding Mahavira are his predecessors, the 23 tirthankaras that have come before him all in a position of meditation.  On the base are more devotees along with two lions and two elephants.  On the front of the base at the bottom is a wheel with two deer on each side, the wheel of dharma.   A beautiful Jain statue!
Care

Brass statues from India do not need much maintenance.  The best way to maintain the statue is to simply dust the piece periodically to keep any dirt from accumulating.  They can be used for both indoor and outdoor use. 

"You can use soap, warm water and a cotton cloth to periodically go over the statue to remove any dust or dirt buildup."

You can use soap, warm water and a cotton cloth to periodically go over the statue to remove any dust or dirt buildup.  If you are really interested in making the statue shine you can use some natural oil, like coconut oil or olive oil, and a cotton rag to wipe down the metal portions of the piece.  You can use a toothbrush as well to get into the small crevices of the statue like the hands and hair. 

Indian brass's durability makes it perfect for cold winters and hot summers of any climate.  The metal can stand up to the harshest conditions of heat and bitter cold.  We suggest you bathe the sculpture every couple of months so that dirt does not collect on the sculpture and then use a cotton cloth with some natural oil to give the statue a shine.
