Rock drawings, known as petroglyphs, were discovered in thousands of hills in the Konkan area of ​​western Maharashtra.
Mostly discovered in the areas of Ratnagiri and Rajapur, most of the drawings engraved on rocky and flat hills have survived unnoticed for thousands of years.
Most of the drawings were hidden under the soil and mud layers. However, a few remained open, and in some regions they were considered sacred by the local people and worshiped.
A wide variety of rock drawings have amazed the experts; animals, birds, human figures and geometric designs were all depicted.
The shape of the petroglyphs and their similarity to the drawings in other parts of the world led them to be believed to have been made in prehistoric times and probably among the oldest petroglyphs ever discovered.
“The first result of these petroglyphs was that they were built around 10,000 BC, civarında says Tejas Garge, director of the Maharashtra State Archeology Department.
He saw a group of researchers led by Sudhir Risbood and Manoj Marathe, who began to look at the drawings after seeing a few of the drawings in the region. Many of the drawings were found in village temples and played an important role in local folklore.
. We walked thousands of miles, Ris says Risbood. People started sending us photos and we even added schools to our research to find them. The students asked their grandparents to find out if they knew any other drawings. This has provided us with valuable information, Bu he says.
The researchers found petroglyphs in and around 52 villages in the region. But only five villages were aware that these drawings existed in their villages.
Risbood and Mr Marathe played an active role in documenting petroglyphs, as well as lobbying authorities to investigate and investigate the drawings.
Garge says the drawings were created by a hunter-gatherer community not familiar with agriculture.
“We couldn't find any drawings of agricultural activities. But the drawings depict hunted animals and elaborate animal forms. So these people knew animals and sea creatures. This shows that they are dependent on hunting for food. Bu
Shrikant Pradhan, an investigator and art historian who closely explores petroglyphs, says these people are clearly inspired by what he observed from time to time in his drawings.
Ları Many petroglyphs depict familiar animals. Sharks and whales, as well as amphibians, such as turtles have drawings. Ve
But this raises the question of why some petroglyphs describe animals such as rhinoceros and hippos that are not found in India. Did the people who drew them migrated from Africa to India? Or were they once living in India?
The government has allocated a $ 3.2 million fund to study the 400 petroglyphs set. It is hoped that at least some of these questions will be answered.
