Early Rock Art and Tribal Art in India : An Anthropological Revelation

"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."
