NON-EXPORTABLE REGISTERED ANTIQUITY

PROVENANCE
Property from a Distinguished Family Collection


The sculpture shows a Digambara tirthankara or jina in a meditation pose known as kayotsarga, or the position of "abandoning the body." This is believed to be the most exacting pose, taking non-violence, the central concept of Jainism to its extreme. In this pose, the body stands erect and symmetrical. The feet are slightly apart and firmly planted on the ground, with the weight of the body evenly distributed on unbent legs. The arms hang loosely along the body. This is a pose of complete peace and liberation.
