Shilpashastra (iconography)

Vidheya (विधेय) refers to one of the forty-seven tānas (tone) used in Indian music.—The illustration of Vidheya (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 an elephant. A viṇā is in his right hand and the left hand is in Pravacana-Mudrā.

The illustrations (of, for example Vidheya) 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).
