P A D M A P A N I. Ajanta

An exemple or Gupta Art inside the cave n°1 in Ajanta, the Bodhisattva Padmapani. Ajanta near Ellora are two wonderful places to visit.. One would need a tripod to get the entire colors of those paintings, things I don't carry when travelling. It's quite unbelievable to see how rich they are.

The Gupta era started around 320 After Christ

 

A Nice exhibition about Gupta Art in Paris right now:
