And it is not just the one-of-a-kind, supra-simplistic lines and curves that set Warli paintings apart from the rest of India's folk arts. When one hears of Madhubanis and Pattachitras and Tanjores, devotional images such as popular deities and mythological characters come to mind. However, Warli paintings depict the social life of humans and as such have an earthier, more widely relatable appeal. Their unique wedding rituals, the endemic trees and animals that nourish them, and typical tribal activities such as fishing, cooking, and ploughing fields are some of the numberless themes that such a vivid subject would lend to art. The paintings that have been curated here conform to the age-old tradition of this art, and are made on cotton fabric. Pick one for your home and/or office today.
