CATALOGUE NOTES
The name swastika comes from Sanskrit and denotes "conducive to well being or auspicious". In Hinduism, the clockwise symbol is called swastika, symbolizing surya (sun), prosperity and good luck. In Jainism, a swastika is the symbol for Suparshvanatha ? the 7th of 24 Tirthankaras, while in Buddhism it symbolizes the auspicious footprints of the Buddha. Source: Wikipedia
