Daraki-Chattan Cave, Madhya Pradesh: Acheulian Petroglyph Site, c. 200,000 - 500,000 BP / t) dcpitelephstone

Looking into the excavation pit. A boulder with possibly some flaking.

Tentative interpretation (James Harrod). Given thoughts on figurative (natural or otherwise) art of this cave, with possible rows of 'elephants', as noted in previous images, is it impossible to also see the vague features of an 'elephant' in this stone?
