Photographer: Sykes, D.H.
Medium: Photographic print
Photograph of a frieze of the Great Jain cave at Dharasinva, taken by D.H. Sykes in 1875. In his report of the operations in Western India in 1875-76 James Burgess wrote, 'The facade, of which a small portion remains at the east end, projects 2 feet 11 inches in front of the line of the pillars of the verandah...over this is a line of small half figures supporting a rail 8 inches thick, and a panelled frieze over it 12 1/2 inches deep, surmounted by other narrower ones containing dwarf attendants. Above these are some mouldings, and then a row of chaitya window ornament...The whole is so wasted, however, that only the prominent features of it can be made out.'
