The Warli tribe of Thane in Maharashtra has a long tradition of painting. They paint primarily for the purpose of appeasing spirits. But they also paint pictures devoid of spirit invocation. Each of these pictures is a narration - the main thread of the story is encompassed in the continuously changing, forever moving life of the multitudes.

The painting here depicts events in a forest. Humans, wild animals, and birds are all involved in one or the other activity - beasts following its prey, the former being shot at with a bow and arrow. In a nutshell, the hunter, the hunted and all related to a forest milieu are shown. The humans continue to be a curvaceous unity of two triangles and the animals are elongated, emphasizing the stomach. Since it is a forest picture, animals share as much space and importance as the men and women. Primitive weapons like bows and arrows, axes, slings are painted in plenty. That they are familiar with crude guns is depicted at the top where a hunter uses such a contraption to shoot a tiger. A bird sitting on a tree is shot with an arrow and later being carried in a net is part of the event happening in the forest being narrated pictorially.

Trees of Warlis are stylized - their basic shapes are drawn from nature and then transformed to express the Warli viewpoint. Surprisingly, the austere brown and white does not mar the beauty of the picture. What it lacks in terms of color, it makes up in its remarkable line and theme which is intensely social in nature. The viewer is compelled to stray from figure to figure, threading the sequence of events, participating in their frantic activity, viewing life as reflected through the simple ideology of the Warli tribals.

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.
