Made by applying organic soot-based paint to handmade paper, this Godna painting features repetitive motifs that are hard to distinguish. Against the white of the rough-hewn handmade paper one could make out circular rows of crabs and elephants and owls, animals integral to Indian rural life. Zoom in on each row - note the section of aged stem that differentiates each motif from the next. Within the centremost of the circles lies a school of fish, the culmination of their mouths being the centre of the composition.
