How did Prabhu Mahavir actually look like?

One of the earliest physical descriptions of Lord Mahavir Swami occurs in an Upang Agam named Shri Aupapatik Sutra. Must know for all Jains. Read the entire thread below~

I extend my warm greetings and good wishes to the people of our country on the auspicious occasion of Mahavir Jayanti.

Lord Mahavir was one of the most charismatic and influential spiritual leaders to have walked the earth. Image
His messages of nonviolence, truth, honesty, selflessness and sacrifice are timeless and full of universal compassion.He preached the gospel of universal love & emphasized that all living beings, including plants & animals,are equal and deserved to be treated with love & respect.
We must draw inspiration from Lord Mahavir’s life, his practice of austerity, his stress on the need to adopt a positive attitude towards life & his messages of love, tolerance & peace, especially now, when humanity is facing a formidable health crisis of the spread of #COVID19

The #PatnaMuseum and the #Buddha Smriti Park Museum, both in #Patna are my absolute loves ♥️the Patna Museum was established in 1917 with collections that would be safe keeping in mind the local climatic conditions #Bihar #Art #museums #MuseumsWeek #MuseumDocumentation #India ImageImageImage
They ranged from Kurkihara bronzes (best in the world) to large&small stone exquisite sculptures of #Buddha #Bodhisatvas #Mahavir #Jain tirthankaras, Queens, Kings & commoners, but less textiles. Of course, the rich #PatnaSchoolpaintings are treasured here. Pics1-3 are from there
The other photos are of the first #narrative and #interpretive #museum on the life of Buddha. It was opened in 2013 at the #BuddhaSmritiPark (Buddha Memorial Park). It’s at the site of Patna’s old #Bankipore jail, and now is one of the most peaceful place in this chaotic city ImageImageImageImage
