Manuscript of 25 paintings bound in red covers illustrating either punishments of the sinful (19 folios) or the lives of Jain saints. This folio is divided into three equal sections; in the first section a horse with seven heads pulls a chariot carrying a representation of a jina complete with nimbus. The next two sections portray architectural structures that house sculptures while devotees surround.
