Images of India - 103

A glimpse of India in black and white. This is a picture of Warli painting. They are folk paintings from Maharashtra and are very different from other folk and tribal paintings in India.

I just wonder how they managed to create such a perfect circle of identical figures.

I really love this pattern piece. And it certainly is different from most of what you show us.

I went and read the Wikipedia article about warli paintings. I wonder what this painting represents.

To understand and enjoy the paintings of Warlis, one should know their religion, their rituals and see life from their perspective.

Nice capture :)

Warli pantings are amazing as they create a whole world with just a few geometrical shapes !

Beautiful click, Rajesh. I stay at Panvel. Members of the Warli tribe were once invited on Panvel station by the Central Railway and they painted the entire station with such paintings. White shapes on red oxide background. I talked to one of the guys for a long time. He said that all these paintings depict mythological events. He showed me one from Ramayana, when Seeta was kidnapped by Ravan. Well, I admit, I couldn't see either Seeta or Ravana, but, I just loved the symmetry and their dedication.
