Tirthankara Bhagawan Mahavira

The life and missions of Bhagawan Shri Mahavira has been of boundless inspiration to thousands and millions of people all these years. The whole life span of Bhagawan Shri Mahavira has been full of significant events which led to Nirvana. It is this great spirit of thought and action, full of benevolence and compassion, that had to be captured and transformed in a book form; a captivating panorama etched out with eloquent lines and filled with fascinating colors. To recreate these life events, the artist had not only to visualize but to live with those great moments on his mind’s plane to lend authenticity to his work. This could be possible only for an artist of the class of Shri Gokulbhai Kapadia whose ready ability to gain insight into his subject has been one of his great assets. It is for this reason that he could use line and color of unsurpassed purity and sharpness and expressive strength. When the communion is complete, the effect can thus be total.
