Ajanta Cave 17, antechamber to the shrine, Adoration of the Buddha (color illustration).

NOTE: This painting of the Adoration of the Buddha (a creative copy of a frieze in Ajanta Cave 17 [1], located on left wall of the antechamber to the sanctum, with border created by composition of various Ajanta elements) was commissioned by Thomas Holbein Hendley (1847-1917) for the decoration of the walls of the hall of the Albert Hall Museum, Jaipur, India, probably circa 1887, and he had the work painted by a local artist variously named Murli or Murali (in Jaipur Nama: Tales from the Pink City by Giles Henry Rupert Tillotson p.156), so the work is pre-1923. This work is otherwise presented as characteristic of the end of the 19th century ("artist Murali and Kishan are good examples of 19th C. painting" in Wall Paintings of Rajasthan [2] p.23).
