An Antique Mahavira

An antique, intricate sculpture of Mahavira in India. Mahavira was born a little before the Buddha. While the Buddha was the founder of Buddhism, Mahavira did not establish Jainism, but gave the religion its present-day form. Mahavira, like the Buddha, was born as a prince but renounced his royal life at the age of 30 and became an ascetic.
