Caption: Double-sided Leaf from a Chandana Malayaqiri Varta Series Ascribed to the artists Karam and Mahata Chandji Northern India (Rajasthan, Marwar), 1745 Opaque watercolor and gold on paper Overall: 11 3/8 x 7 7/8 in. (28.9 x 20.0 cm) Brooklyn Museum. Gift of Mr. and Mrs. Paul E. Manheim, 69.125.5

Label: Whereas most manuscript paintings made in Rajasthan in the eighteenth century were commissioned by Hindu rulers, this painting was made for a practitioner of the Jain religion, probably a wealthy merchant. The image illustrates a Jain text (though the precise subject is difficult to identify) and includes a small shrine with an icon of a Jain savior, known as a Jina or Tirthankara, on the right. The icon sits cross-legged in a meditative posture, and the temple has two white towers of the classic North Indian form. In a nice detail, a small pool in front of the temple reflects the surrounding architecture.
