New cave painting in South India
Just stumbled upon a new video (June 2017) about a cave painting in South India.
The placement of the doodle that looks like a circular flying saucer is high on the cave ceiling.
The figures seem very different from the other figures drawn on the walls.
The drawing is also partly eroded due to time.
