BIG 19thC Jain Bronze Jina with vines growing up his legs and arms. I've seen a few others of this type, but all were between 11 and 15 inches. This one towers over them all at 21.5 inches tall, standing on a base that elevates it another 2.5 inches. Cast in two parts and joined at the waist (a little loose, but solidly attached). This type of casting was sometimes used on larger bronze statues in Nepal in the 19th century and earlier. If you search the internet, there are very few large old Jain bronzes of this impressive size.
