he paintings and sculptures of Ajanta and Ellora are considered as masterpieces of the Buddhist art and they have had a great influence in the development of art in India. Hence, UNESCO has considered these caves as a World Heritage Site since 1983.The paintings on the walls and ceilings dramatically reflect the sophisticated achievements of the very apogee of India s so-called Golden age, generally associated with the Gupta Dynasty. The creativity of the sculptures depict various human and animal forms and even make them expressive makes the cave paintings at Ajanta one of the high watermarks of artistic creativity. The Ellora caves are a unique artistic creation and its sanctuaries devoted to different religious illustrate the spirit of tolerance that was a characteristic of ancient India.

Cave paintings of India date back to the prehistoric times. The finest examples of these paintings comprise of the murals of Ajanta, Ellora, Bagh, Sittanavasal, etc, which reflect an emphasis on naturalism. Ancient cave paintings of India serve as a window to our ancestors, who used to inhabit these caves. Apart from Ajanta and Ellora Bhimbetka caves of Madhya Pradesh, located 46 km south of Bhopal, is a valuable repository that acts like a sentinel to the prehistoric art and architecture of India. all these stand as the logos of Prehistoric cave paintings in India

he tradition of Indian paintings date back to the cave paintings of Bhimbetka. The cave Indian paintings of Bhimbetka are supposedly thousands of years old. The ancient people tried their hands in painting depicting every aspect of their social life. While the pictures of group dance, mask dance and stick dance remind of their leisure time, the paintings of man with the dog, deer hunting, war etc reflect upon the other side of their real life. Different rock weapons, tools, ceramic and bones, bows and arrows, knives were used in painting on cave wall

India is the land where the artists never waited for the canves ..instead made mother nature the canvas to express emotion. Cave paintings of Bhimbetka, Ajanta and Ellora stand as the logos of expression of the ancient Indians
