Strange Carving on Pillar - Ajanta Caves (India)
This graffiti-like ancient carving looks like random curvy lines, but they definitely mean something, since an almost identical pattern is located on another pillar of the same cave: www.flickr.com/photos/loupiote/3716487182/
If you have any information about this carving, please post a comment.

Ajanta Caves (India) are rock-cut cave monuments dating from the second century BC.
The caves contain paintings and sculpture considered to be masterpieces of both "Buddhist religious art" and "universal pictorial art".
Personally I was more impressed by the nearby Ellora Caves.
