AAKAR means – The shape of an object, a person, or an area is the form or pattern of its outline During prehistoric times caveman used signs, sounds and drawings on rocks to tell their tales, which were about rituals and huntings. Storytelling is central to human existence. it involves a exchange between teller and listener. Just as the brain detects patterns in the visual forms of nature — a face, a figure, a flower — and in sound, so too it detects patterns in information, stories are recognizable patterns, and in those patterns we find meaning.
The history of cave paintings in India or rock art range from drawings and paintings from prehistoric times, beginning around 30,000 BCE in the caves of Central India, those at the Bhimbetka rock shelters to rock-cut artificial caves at Ajanta and Ellora. India is known for its tribal art forms from Warli, Bhil art, Saura, Gond art,Kavad art etc.
