TRAVEL IN BHIMBETKA SHOW MAP

Bhimbetka is a World Heritage site and has some of the oldest cave paintings of the world. The colours used by the cave dwellers were prepared combining manganese, hematite, soft red stone and wooden coal. Sometimes the fat of animals and extracts of leaves were also used in the mixture. The colours have remained intact for many centuries due to the chemical reaction resulting from the oxide present on the surface of the rocks.

MUST SEE IN BHIMBETKA

The superimposition of paintings shows that the same canvas was used by different people at different times. The drawings and paintings can be classified under seven different periods:

PERIOD I - UPPER PALEOLITHIC :

These are linear representations, in green and dark red, of huge figures of animals such as bisons, tigers and rhinoceroses.

PERIOD II - MESOLITHIC : Comparatively small in size, the stylised figures in this group show linear decoration on the body. The depiction of communal dances, birds, musical instruments, mother and child, pregnant women, men carrying dead animals, drinking and burials appear in rhythmic movement.

PERIOD III - CHALEOLITHIC : Similar to the paintings of Chaleolithic pottery, these drawings reveal that during the period the cave dwellers of this area had come in contact with the agricultural communities of the Malwa plains and started an exchange of their requirements with each other.
