Ihalokiya Fulfillment

Ihalokiya Fulfillment

Ihalokiya Fulfillment

A canvas of pristine tussar silk. Superimposed with luxuriant black lines, filled in with solid reds, blues, and yellows. A composite picture of ihalokiya (worldly) pursuits, inspired by the social life of the coastal tribespeople. In fact, this is what sets apart the folk art of the Warli people from the rest of India’s numerous folk arts. As opposed to the spiritual and devotional overtones of the inner life, Warli paintings are all about the fulfillment of the outer life.

The painting that you see on this page captures every almost aspect of tribal life. The twin central panels are like the doors of an ancient temple thrown open. Each of the series of colourful stick figures (highly characteristic of Warli) depict an aspect of tribal social life. Wedding procession, returning to the village with a fresh catch of fish, hunting and gathering, cop-picking and husbandry, and - most importantly - dancing and celebration next to a limpid river, to which the largest panels at the bottom have been dedicated. In the panels that flank the aforementioned ones, there is more gathering and feasting and dancing around the tree of life. It is of note how important the presence of animals is in the daily life of this gentle tribe.

This is an eclectic composition in terms of symmetry and colour ration. Despite the asymmetry, it exudes great harmony. Also, the predominance of thick black lines, with a controlled infusion of colour, makes this an expressive painting.

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
Thank you for your wonderful service and amazing book selection. We are long time customers and have never been disappointed by your great store. Thank you and we will continue to shop at your store
