Description: A RED SANDSTONE FIGURE OF A JINA IN STANDING MEDITATION.
Rajasthan/Madhya Pradesh, 9th/10th c. Height 59 cm.

STEHENDER JINA. Rajasthan/Madhya Pradesh, 9./10. Jh. H 59 cm.

STEHENDER JINA.
Rajasthan/Madhya Pradesh, 9./10. Jh. H 59 cm.
Rötlicher Sandstein. Der unbekleidete Tirthankara steht in perfekter Ausgewogenheit in der stehenden Meditationsposition (kayotsarga). Ein feines Srivatsa ziert die Brust. Ausgeprägte geschwungene Augenbrauen wölben sich über den schmalen mandelförmigen Augen. Nase und Geschlecht wurden wohl bereits im 12. Jahrhundert von moslemischen Eroberern beschädigt, um dem religiösen Bilderverbot Genüge zu tun und die Figur symbolisch zu vernichten.

Belgian private collection. Illustrated in: Armand Neven, New Studies into Indian and Himalayan Sculpture, Exhibition at Gallery De Ruimte, Eersel, The Netherlands, 1980, no. 110.
