Folio from a manuscript. Jain school, Western India, probably Delhi. Gouache on paper, circa early 15th century. Approx. 11.5 x 26.7cm

Folios from this manuscript and others of the type as yet remain a puzzle with regard to their identity. The well-known Jain scholar, Robert J Del Bonta, informs me they are considered to be linked to animal fables such as the Panchatantra.
