The Illustrations of Man, Bhimbetka

Those who came thousands of years before us toiled, scavenged, gathered and hunted since the dawn of the Paleolithic period to outrun the big, bad dog-eat-dog world. Through cave paintings and smoothed out floors, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is a surprising documentation of man’s own evolution. Paintings of men dancing and riding elephants slowly morph into ones of him riding a chariot, and the invention of the wheel lies somewhere along the way.
