The Ajanta wall paintings are famous for their magnificent line work, the use of natural pigments obtained from pebbles,vegetables mixed with glue, the artistry achieved with only primitive tools such as squirrel`s tail. For many years these pictures were called frescoes, and they are now referred to as murales, due to the fact that they were painted on a dry surface.
|Avalokitesvara who looks down|
A layer of clay was mixed with cow dung and powdered rice husk and, it has been suggested, also urine. This was first applied to the chipped rock surface. When it dried, a second coat of lime plaster was applied with a trowel. The lines of the image were then drawn in pink, brown or black, and the colours filled in with big brushes, made from the hair of squirrel tails.The main colours used were red ochre, yellow ochre, brown ochre, lamp black, white and lapis lazuli which was imported from Northern India, central Asia and Persia. The green was made by mixing this lapis lazuli with Indian yellow ochre.
