Description This masterpiece bronze statue showcase a tirthankara meditating surrounded by an amazing arch full of other tirthankaras along with attendants, lions, yalis and an owl.  A tirthankara is someone who helps people on the path to enlightenment as an arihant or Jain holy figure. In this sculpture the main tirthankara figure, probably Mahavira, is captured with his hands clasp together in an attitude of meditation.  He is naked with his chest inflated with the breath of meditation.  Above him is a palanquin with one attendant seated on the umbrella.  to his left and right are two attendants standing on the heads of a mythical beast called a yali.  Beneath the yalis are two seated lions.  Surrounding the main figure are the full 24 tirthankaras all in a position of meditation.  On the base are two more devotees seated with their right hand raised in the abhaya mudra.  Above them are two lions.  In the front of the base are two lounging lions as well as an owl.  A masterpiece Jain statue!
