Warli is different from the folk and tribal idiom known to urban India. Warli paintings made by the Warli tribals of Maharashtra are strangely ascetic. They do not consist of myriad primary colors, so intimately associated with folk painting. The themes are remarkable in their intensely social nature. Men, animals and trees form a loose, rhythmic pattern across the entire sheet.

Warli landscapes unfold vistas with depictions of everyday life - of plants, animals and men, where the minutest creature is not forgotten. The narration of the story is not linear but rather one which takes place boundless space, where action is not sequential but simultaneous. The figures have been scattered over the pictorial space. The scene of action starts from the upper left corner where a potter is making pots on the wheel. Clay is being delivered to him by a woman carrying it in a big basket. The pots are being sun-dried in rows out in the open. They are being carried by various means to the kiln where they are being baked. A couple of men are carrying them on sticks with pots tied in a cluster at each end., the women are carrying them in baskets and a bullock cart pulled by two oxen is also carrying them. The scene of this action ends diagonally to the kiln where men and women help in stoking the fire with long sticks.

Birds and animals move fearlessly amongst scores of people, each involved in his own activity. Many different types of trees have been evolved, from those with swirling circles to those that look like winnow baskets. These heavily stylized trees have been invented by the Warlis, expressing their new found confidence.

Testimonials

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
