Rock paintings-Alambadi


Pictures of cow, calf, deer and bear have been painted in red and white ochre on the rocks at Alambadi. The inner organs of the cow and the deer have been depicted as if they have been x-rayed. The paintings of the bodies of the animals are, however, incomplete. A mask of a man is an interesting painting.

The painting of the x-rayed cow seemed similar to those found at Chaturpetnattallah and Chatkunda in Madhyapradesh and Sethavarai in Tamil Nadu. The paintings were superimposed on the same surface.
