The Analysis of Jina Images [Part 11]

Published: 16.02.2012

The essay was published in Berliner Indologische Studien No. 2. 1986, pp. 133-174.


§ 21. Photographs (I)

In contrast to the photo section in IJI, [1] we have collected below mainly addenda to JID but few photos which are relevant to particular points in our arguments. In addition to the eight reproductions (2-9), we have given a short description of eight further pieces (10*-17*). In the text of our essay, reference is made to both series. The two series contain only standing images of the Early-Medieval Style (all with the exception of 17 from Deogarh).




Figs. 2-3 concern the Class with Miniature-Figures, 4-5 the Uncouth Class, and 6-7 the pentad of § 122. Refer for Figs.8-9 to the entries given below. The uncertainty regarding Figs. 4 and 9 results from the fact that in a number of cases no full views were obtained from images standing in the pradakṣiṇāpatha of Temple No. 12.
