Historical Information on Ellora and Ajanta Caves! In Maharashtra, India.

The Ellora Caves and the Ajanta Caves are near Aurangabad in Maharashtra.

Chalukya and Rashtrakuta kings ruled over the Deccan from the middle of the 6th century AD to almost the end of the 12th century. The former were tolerant of all religions and, under their liberal patronage, the technique of excavating rock-cut temples reached a high degree of perfection. With the rise of the Rashtrakuta and other powers in the Deccan, there was a decline of Buddhist influence, but artistic activity continued unabated.

Rock-hewn architecture reached its zenith in western India as the Western Ghats provided suitable sites for excavation and carving. No existing caves as such were used. Thus architecture was sculpture on a mass scale. The solidity of the rock obviated the need for periodic repairs, and many of the temples are in a state of good preservation to this day.

When I went to Ajanta & Ellora caves for my study tour. I found this headless sculpture so interesting. And I made this drawing while I was seating there. I have used coloured paper to give stone effect and used water proof ink to bring fresh look to my drawing. Hope you will enjoy my work.

Materials used:

Heavy Coloured Art card paper, Waterproof ink And Water, Pen, Artistic Hand.
