One of the oldest forms of artistic expression is Mural Paintings. It is executed for the purpose of decorating or embellishing a wall. The techniques include encaustic, paintings on canvas which is later fixed onto a wall, painting directly on the surface of the wall, mosaic, stained glass, and wood using a variety of colours.
Mural Paintings in the ancient times were commonly done on walls of palaces and caves. And in India these paintings were popular even in the 2nd century BC. The earliest mural paintings are those that you find on the caves of Ajanta and Ellora, and also on the Sittanvasal and Bagh caves. There are many evidences of mural paintings in the old scripts and literature.
Features of Indian Mural Paintings
The Mural Paintings are quite different from other paintings. In ancient India the colours used on the mural paintings were derived from the natural materials like chalk, terracotta, red ochre and yellow ochre mixed with animal fat. The subjects included hunting scenes, figures of human beings and animals, family scenes, court life, stories from Budhhist ‘Jataka’ and deities.
