Why this is a
Masterpiece

This illustration depicts episodes from twelve years of extreme ascetic practices undergone by Mahavira during his quest for enlightenment

History of the Object
The main religious focus of Jainism is the veneration of 24 jinas, enlightened beings who have achieved liberation from the eternal chain of rebirth and suffering. The last of the jinas was the historical figure Mahavira, a near contemporary of the Buddha, who founded Jainism in the sixth century BC.
