dc.descriptionThis is the same theme as we saw depicted in cave 14, but the movement of this one is more emphatic and gives the impression of a frenzied, merciless form of dance. The main figure appears to want to leave the wall in order to be able to dance more freely. The balanced dynamism of the preceding relief contributed a somewhat sedate harmony to the treatment of the movement. Here the frenzy seems to be about to get the better of it.
