244 IN - Elephanta Caves (1987)

Brief Description

"The 'City of Caves', on an island in the Sea of Oman close to Bombay, contains a collection of rock art linked to the cult of Shiva. Here, Indian art has found one of its most perfect expressions, particularly the huge high reliefs in the main cave."
埃勒凡塔石窟(象岛石窟)

"称为“石窟城”的埃勒凡塔位于阿曼海临近孟买港湾的岛屿上。石窟内集中了大量表现崇拜湿婆神的石雕艺术作品。通过石窟里的那些作品,特别是主洞内高大的浮雕,印度艺术得到了最完美的表现。"
