Until recently, and especially during the 1800s and early 1900s, the paintings in South Asian manuscripts were excised and mounted as individual works of art. These two paintings from a Jain manuscript of the Kalpa-sutra have been separated from the text and mounted with gold-flecked borders, like pictures in an album.
