Jain tirthankara

yellowish bronze
Western India (Gujarat), dated Samvat 1512 (?), i.e. 1456 (?) AD.
high: 14,5 cm.

It is difficult to identify this Tirthankara. It could be a crocodile below the tirthankara, and that would point to the 9th Tirthankara, Suvidhinatha. Otherwise, maybe more probable, it is a bull. Then it is Rishabhanatha, or Adinatha, the first of the Tirthankaras.
