The unique quality of the Warli pictographs lies in their timelessness. Their abstract and basic forms resemble the cave paintings of pre- and pro-historic periods. The paintings are made by 'sahavasinis,' or married women whose husbands are alive. They are painted on an austere brown or rust color with only one color, mainly white.

The format of this painting is that of a central tribal dance, surrounded by scenes from the hamlet. The two have been divided with the help of different colors. On Diwali, the festival of lights, as the lamps are lit, the 'Tarpa,' the Warli pipe is used to summon young couples in the village to dance in a ring. The tribal blast is a dance performed in a circle to the tune of tarpa, an instrument made by the tribals themselves out of a dried gourd made hollow, together with short, hollow bamboo sticks. Young people gather at the village open space and dance through the night. Here, men and women alternate in the formation of a serpentine circle. They do not turn their backs to the tarpa but dance facing it. The dance is a breath-taking round of swinging, swirling movement.

A plethora of trees, animals and humans weave in and out of the surrounding space with the trees dominating the landscape. The trees are stylized as much as the human and animal figures, giving an impression of cave paintings of yore. Scenes of domesticity are enclosed within the outline of huts. The kind of activity, the people are engaged in, suggests a primitive level of development. The simplicity of the painting is the major point of attraction towards it.

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.
