CAVE 20 AJANTA
Cave 20 has an elaborate carved stairway, up to a modest
cave, which borrows much from Caves 1 and 17.
The interior ceiling certainly copies motifs from other,
grander caves. However, it also adds scenes of hunting and battle which
are rare at Ajanta.
The animals, fish-tailed figures, and lotuses are all reminders
that this ceiling, like the others at the site, depicts a lotus-lake.
