Vintage sculpture of Lord Mahavira | Tirthankara is handcrafted in brass with an exquisite black and gold patina finish.
Mahavira, also known as Vardhamāna, was the twenty-fourth and last Jain Tirthankara or spiritual teacher. Born into a royal family in what is now Bihar, India, in 599 BC, he left his home at the age of 30 in pursuit of Spiritual awakening and abandoned worldly things, including his clothes to become a monk.
The Tirtankara with a quiet subtle smile and downcast eyes is someone who helps people on the path to enlightenment as an Arihant or Jain holy figure.
For the next twelve-and-a-half years, Mahavira practiced intense meditation and severe penance, after which he became Kevali or omniscient.
Seated here as the central idol in a Padmasana mudra or posture with the emblem of the lion at his feet and the lotus on his chest , this Mahavira sculpture is a collectors item.
