LIGHT AND DARKNESS
The numinous space of the cave like opening, which has been formed by the way in which great rocks have slipped into position, one forming a kind of roof over the upper portion of what is called the Eddakal cave. This is strictly speaking not a cave in the usual sense in that it is formed by huge boulders lodged one against the other, creating a space beneath the rocks. In this way an opening to the skies at the back of the enclosed space, provides a source of light that helps throw the engraved forms into relief. The play of light and darkness is a very important aspect of the total theatre, which becomes like a drama of contrasting shapes.
