India in 52 frames - 25

The oldest canvas in the world


Deep in the heart of Madhya Pradesh, lie the cave shelters of Bhinmetka. These shelters exhibit the earliest traces of human life in India. It is suggested that at least some of these shelters were inhabited by man for in excess of 100,000 years. Some of the  rock paintings found among the Bhimbetka rock shelters are approximately 30,000 years old.
