ARTstor and Deepanjana Danda Klein have collaborated to release nearly 2,000 additional images of the rock-cut cave temples at Ellora in Maharashtra, India in the Digital Library. These 34 Buddhist, Hindu, and Jain caves were excavated from a two-kilometer stretch of rock cliff between the sixth and tenth centuries C.E. Klein’s work at Ellora represents the first systematic photographic campaign of the entire site, including photography of previously undocumented caves.
All photographs were taken by Arno Klein and annotations for these images are based on Professor Spink’s notes from the site. Klein is a Specialist in the Modern & Contemporary Indian Art Department at Christie’s. She has a Ph.D. in Indian art history from De Montfort University (DMU) and has taught art history, theory, and aesthetics at the School of Architecture at DMU, Leicester and at the Kamla Raheja Vidyanidhi Institute for Architecture and Environmental Studies in Mumbai.
