Rock Art of Andhra Pradesh: A New Synthesis

N. Chandramouli (Author) IGNCA Rock Art Series

The present volume embodies comprehensive documentation, classification and analysis of the rock art of Andhra Pradesh, which is one of the important regional rock art zones of peninsular India. The rock art data is analysed from the thematic and stylistic perspective taking note of the features such as colour schemes, superimpositions and state of preservation of the pictographs and petroglyphs. The entire corpus of rock art is classified, both at the intre-site and inter-site levels and tentatively dated to Mesolithic, Neolithic, Megalithic and Historical periods. This is done on the basis of the internal analysis of the rock art representations, corroborated by circumstantial archaeological data either from excavations or surface context.
