Evening Revelry In The Maharashtrian Hinterland

Evening Revelry In The Maharashtrian Hinterland

Warli-style paintings are a highly distinguished form of folk art. While most Indian folk arts are characterised by fabric canvases treated in complex solutions and pigments of a rich colour palette, Warli art is done on rough-hewn cotton fabric with a simple white paste that is organic in nature. Also, the themes are drawn from social life in the rural hinterlands of Maharashtra, as opposed to devotional images. The painting you see on this page is of a gay evening filled with much socialising and revelry.

The geometrically filled out stick-figures in the centre are arranged in a long, swirling curve. At its heart is a trumpeteer, whose instrument has been painted with remarkable attention to detail given the scale. The arrangement is flanked by a hut and a wild plant in full bloom. Starting from the woman sitting at her threshold to the surrounding revellers, each villager is caught amidst a primitive song-and-dance routine. The presence of wild fowl makes the rural setting complete - a rooster afore the hut and a peacock atop the foliage.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.

I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
Very old customer. service very good.
