Description: The same charm of womanly beauty is evidenced in the present example from Jisinpur, Like the previous example, the nudity of the figure provides for a rich creation of curvilinear designs, and we notice, in comparing this Yakshi type with her prototypes in the Mauryan period, that jewelry has been decreased to facilitate this, There is some indication that the female figures were once decorated with paint which might also account for the lack of jewelry, With such sculptures as these, the railing decoration by the Mathuran sculptors has reached its highest point of perfection both for its themes and artistic treatment, -- Mathura, Curzon Museum,
