    I wonder if the female statue is one of Tara.
    Have a Beautiful Day, Ram!

  5. There's a whole lot of Jain sculptures - and some temples in Jaisalmer. Like most of the medium coming from India, they're really intricate and diligent where attention to detail is concerned. These, here, are beautiful.

    I like the last one for its simplicity.
