Monochrome Monday: Tree of Life?

This carved statue was in a Jain cave temple at Ellora in India. It is obviously a female, possibly a goddess, definitely royalty based on the four smaller people attending to her. The tree above her head may be the tree of life. But, I am not sure if that is a part of the Jain faith system.
