This painting is from the earliest known Jain series made in a Mughal-inspired style.
The scene from the life of the first Jina Rishabha depicts Prince Shreyamsa asleep, experiencing eight dreams that foretell the arrival of the Jina Rishabha. The emphasis on the life of the first Jina, rather than the last, indicates that it was commissioned by a follower of the Digambara (Sky Clad) order, rather than the more mainstream Shvetambara (White Clad) order.
