It is known that Ambika was a Yakshi of the 22nd Jain Tirthankara, Lord Neminath that came to life in some exquisite sculptures at Deogarh. Can anyone highlight the iconography of these sculptures where Ambika the Yakshi is seen riding a lion and holding a child?

A Yakshi is a female earth spirit accepted as a symbol of fertility by the Hindu, Buddhist and Jain faiths. She is usually portrayed as a wide-hipped voluptuous woman who can cause a tree to bear fruit simply by touching it with her foot.
