In most Warli paintings, there is no single line of vision but a multiplicity of events take place simultaneously. They are, as in this painting, inter-related to each other in a way which makes them form an inexorable whole. Divided into equal halves with the aid of base color, the theme is common in both parts, namely human activity. Whether it is domestic work in small huts, hunting or working in the fields - it is life seen as celebration of human endeavor. Scenes from the forest and hamlet are depicted with vigor. Various kinds of stylized trees are prominent in the picture. Representation of birds or animals on trees is an accepted fertility charm, although at first sight they look out of place. Birds and animals with two triangles joining at the apex or with elongated bodies are an integral part of a Warli painting.
If we look closely at the painting, we find that humans, trees and animals seem to be arising from a bottomless depth. They seem to be floating, making a loosely knit pattern in the process. The social structure of the Warlis is reflected in their paintings. The activities depicted suggest a primitive level of development. Whatever they are engaged in, is work, a buzz of activity, the essential expression of man. And this very expression is conveyed wonderfully on a pictorial plane.
