Celebration Of Life

Celebration Of Life

In the recesses of the Deccan plateau live a happy, worldly tribe. They go by the name of Warli and make unusual works of art, the likes of which are to be found in no other folk art of India. The Warli people tend to make a celebration out of immediate life and living, without delving overmuch into it, which reflects in their signature white and monotone paintings like the one you see on this page. It depicts the live-giving tree in all the fullness of youth and plenitude, an image of rootedness and forbearance and beauty.

The strong, slender shoot of the tree of life has been thickly layered with white paint. The branches are tapering outwards, the blades of verdure emerging from them having been done with repetitive, self-assured strokes of a rudimentary brush. Note the language of merrymaking in the bodies of the tribesfolk at the foot of the tree. To the left is a human-chain choreography, to the right a trumpeter and a band of dancers. A pair of exotic birds of the tropics flanks the canopy of the live-giving tree.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt
Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
