Just finished (nearly) this Xyston Ptolemaic african elephant ANC 20219, as you can see it is quite a bit smaller than the indian version.

....this is the type of horse in real life.
This 15mm horse with black panther skin was painted by Mennic, one of the best painter I know, for a tutorial on how to paint these style horses check this link

My favorite 15mm Ancients. These are Xyston Macedonian range, I use them for my Seleucids, these chaps were "dandies" like Napoleonic soldiers and like to dress accordingly.

Indian Chariot

Ancient Indian chariots must have been decorated in lots of different styles, this picture is a cart wheel, but I think it gives the idea of how some may have been painted.

Indian Elephant decoration.

Things are timeless in India, I think it quite possible that elephants in ancient time were painted like this .
