Photographer's Note

The sculpture is of Lord Parsvanatha, the last but one Jain Tirthankara. He is standing in the "causal posture", a yogic position important for meditation, and employed in many Jain rituals. When meditating, he may have stood in this fashion for days and even weeks at a time. He enjoys the protection of snakes and disciples while contemplating the eternal verities. (Possibly 8th century)
