The Gonds are among the largest tribes in Central India. Though predominantly centered in Madhya Pradesh, they are present in significant numbers in the states of Madhya Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh and Odisha.
They paint their walls with vibrant depictions of local flora, fauna and gods. Gond paintings depict various celebrations, rituals and man’s relationship with nature.
This mystical art form is created by putting together dots and lines. The imaginative use of the line imparts a sense of movement to the still images.
