"This book is the pioneering attempt on several Indian rock art sites of diverse
regions exhaustively studied by the writer for decades and finally a database is equipped
with attributes on early rock art imagery. Now, in India the earliest evidence of human
creative impulse is analytically illustrated in this volume. The added attraction is its
outstanding approach where rock art of prehistoric and early historic era is categorically
compared with living art tradition and related practices by several indigenous tribal
communites sharing the common locale. The result shows amazing affinity between art
imagery of two discrete periods, its tangible and intangible expressions. The analytical
study determines possible linkage between the two periods in the process of cultural
community. It is a unique exposition and passionate narrative by Dr. Somnath Chakraverty -
a distinguished and internationally renowned Anthropologist, who is dedicated in exploring
indigenous art heritage of India."
