Indian textile painting (c.1525).
Meditative picture of a mystic diagram on the seated figure of Parsvanatha, one of the principal deities of the Jain religion.
Similar in concept and function to Buddhist mandalas, the mystic diagram is dominated by linked squares and circles representing the Jain cosmos. The nine interconnected circles represent the continents, mountains, and rivers of the universe. Symmetrically balanced on either side of Parsvanatha are subsidiary Jain deities, written mantras, and the plants and animals of the mortal realm.
