Head of Parshvanatha, the 23rd Jain Tirthankara or Jina, protected by the seven-headed Naga (cobra) hood. Carved in high relief in the characteristic mottled red sandstone of Mathura. The head has been broken away from a full-length figure of the Jina, at the level of the neck. The head has a round, beardless face, long-lobed ears, and smooth cap-like hair. The sevenfold snake hood (Seshaphani) is that of the Yaksha Dharanendra, and on top of each of the heads is a symbol, one or two of which are those of earlier Tirthankaras (Swastika, Thunderbolt and Lotus(?) ).
