This column fragment consists of a base with a seated jina in the center with a tiered umbrella above him under an elaborate arch flanked by two figures to either side—two male and dancing females at the outside.  Three virtually identical bands above it represent smaller seated jinas in less elaborate pavilions.  A pair of male cauri bearers with a devotional male on the outside flanks each of the two central figures.  The top figure is flanked by the pair of cauri bearers, but with an elephant surmounted by a lion figure on either side.   There is no cognizance present to identify any of the four jinas, all are depicted in lotus position and their hands in dhyana mudra, a meditation gesture.   <br />
