About the Image

Jain Cosmological Map, 19th Century by Library Of Congress, Geography And Map Division

Jain cosmological map, 19th century. Titled Manusyaloka ('map of the world of man'), this artwork shows the world according to the cosmological traditions of Jainism, an ancient religion of India. Human couples are seen in pavilions at different levels, with rivers and world-girdling oceans (blue rings) separating them. The central continent (Jambudvipa, the island of the rose apple tree) has rivers and six mighty mountains (rows with triangles), with Mount Meru at centre (yellow circle). This artwork, from western Rajasthan, India, is gouache (a type of paint) on cloth, and dates from the 1890s.

About the Artist - Library Of Congress, Geography And Map Division

Library Of Congress, Geography And Map Division

Science Photo Library was founded in 1981 by Michael Marten, one of the authors of "Worlds Within Worlds", a book exploring different ways to observe the universe - from electron micrographs, to images of earthrise taken from the Apollo spacecraft. When Marten started receiving requests for the beautiful images in the book, he had an idea of setting up Science Photo Library. Since then, Science Photo Library has continued to work alongside world acclaimed photographers and the leading science and medical experts to provide a central source of the best science and specialist imagery available. Although the collection started with scientific images, it has grown to encompass all aspects of science and their impact on everyday life.
