Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya (CSMVS)

The bronze sculpture depicts Bahubali (he of strong arms) who was the second son of the first tirthankara, Rishabha. Bahubali retreated to the forest to repent after assaulting his brother Bharata. Creepers grew around his legs, but he was not deterred from his austerities. Bahubali, therefore, serves as an image of physical and mental strength.
