The Jain statue which is currently on display in Scarborough Art Gallery.

Statue represents Naminatha of the Jain religion of India

At first glance you’d be forgiven for thinking this was a statue of Buddha.

Made in northern India around 400 years ago this statue is believed to represent Naminatha, the twenty-first Tirthankara of the Jain religion.
