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!

The delivery charges include insurance, a residential lift gate delivery to your home or business. The freight company will call you to schedule a delivery day and time frame to make the delivery. Someone must be present to receive the statue. Depending on where you are located we will use either R&L Carriers, UPS Freight, Estes, DHX or Roadrunner Transport.
The freight company will use a lift gate to bring the sculpture to the ground and then use a pallet jack to move it anywhere on the same level. They will move it anywhere in your driveway or in your garage. They will not take it to your backyard or in the elevator to your apartment or up or down any steps. They will not be unpacking the statue and taking the crate away. Think of them as you would UPS or Fedex. They only deliver the statue. If you require a little extra service, (within reason) a tip to a delivery man usually works wonders!
For placing the statue our customers have either placed the statue themselves with help of a friend and a tool like a hand truck or a dolly. Or by contacting their landscaper who is used to moving large and heavy objects like rocks and trees into place. For much larger and heavier sculptures sometimes the customer needs a piece of heavy equipment for placing the statue like a crane or forklift.
