Transcript SflVsVHSJPVsVSBSP^BVVBJPBHSPHSJI BJsPSBBBJBBBBH 10 EXPLANATION OF THE PLATES. interior of these extraordinary excavations, in which the Triad Deity of the Hindoos is distinguishable at the termination of the central aisle, or avenue. A strong light is thrown into the cave through an accidental aperture in the side of the mountain, the light originally admitted being only from the principal entrance. XXVIIL Comparative View of two principal Pillars in the Excavations at Salsette and Elephanta. The lofty columns, surmounted by elephants, and something like a bell, was drawn correctly from one highly-finished in the large temple at Salsette. The other is a representation of the fluted pillars in the Elephanta cavern. Its capital seems well adapted to the situation, giving the spectator an idea of its being pressed and swelled by supporting the superincumbent mountain. y XXIX. Scene of a melancholy Event on the Island of Salsette. The little affecting anecdote of a Hindoo mother having her only child carried off by a tiger, wThile gathering fuel on the borders of a forest, is mentioned in the Memoirs at Salsette. The spirit and interest of the original drawing, which is from the pencil of Count de Montalembert, have been well preserved in the engraving. XXX. Ragonath Row, Ballajee, Pundit-Purdhan, Peshwa of the J Mahratta Empire. This portrait, from a drawing made during the campaign in Guzerat in 1775, was thought to be a striking likeness of Ragobah, or Ragonath Row, the Brahmin sovereign of the Mahrattas. On being shown the original drawing, he said it was rather an unfavourable likeness, but if I would make a sketch of him after gaining a battle, it would be more pleasing, and exhibit his real character. That not according with the general opinion, the drawing remained in its original condition.
