There is no text on this page. Sometimes Jain manuscripts have purely decorative pages, such as this one, either before the text starts or at the end after it is complete. Such pages are like covers.

As a rule, such pages do not depict any scene. They present ornamental motifs of several geometric shapes. The shape on this page does not show any special item or holy symbol. It cannot be said to have any specific relationship with the text on the following pages. However, it functions as an auspicious symbol.

Decorative motifs are often intricate, as if to underline the idea of abundance and wealth. Colours – here red, blue and yellow – are lavishly used in harmonious patterns. Here the main circular form is continued by two arrow-like offshoots on either side. Four additional motifs are shown at each of the four corners, with flower-like shapes in between.
