In Hinduism

Shilpashastra (iconography)

Gamya (गम्य) refers to one of the forty-seven tānas (tone) used in Indian music.—The illustration of Gamya (as a deity) according to 15th-century Indian art is as follows.—The colour of his body is yellow. His face is similar to the face of a bull. A viṇā is in his right hand and left hand is in Pravacana-Mudrā.

The illustrations (of, for example Gamya) are found scattered throughout ancient Jain manuscripts from Gujarat. The descriptions of these illustrations of this citrāvalī are based on the ślokas of Vācanācārya Gaṇi Sudhākalaśa’s Saṅgītopaniṣatsāroddhāra (14th century) and Śārṅgadeva’s Saṅgītaratnākara (13th century).
