Rock Art in India : In Felicitation of Prof. V. H. Sonawane

"This is a unique volume in view of the fact that for the first time, it presents a comprehensive account of rock art heritage of India from the Himalayas to the Southern coast and from the Gujarat coast to the Odisha coast through collection of twenty two research based articles contributed by rock art specialists of the various regions of the Subcontinent. Running over to 508 pages of text supplemented by 81 figures and 193 colour plates the volume would be a useful source material for students, researchers and public at large for understanding the Rock Art Heritage of India. The volume presents a spectacular account of rock art scenario of India: in which while North India and South India are pronounced largely by petroglyphs (engravings) with fiew specimen of Pictographs (Paintings) Central India comprising the states of Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan that account for the largest concentration of rock pictures in the country (more than two-thirds) are featured by pictographs with fiew instances of petroglyphs.

This volume is dedicated to felicitate Professor V. H. Sonawane, an eminent Field Archaeologist in recognition of his seminal contributions to rock art researchers in India."
