Stunning Gond art at its best in a beautiful range of paintings in Black and White outlines. This is done with intricate lines. The painting is a reflection of the tribes fantasies towards nature, forest and trees. Use of stripes or lines, dots or any other geometric pattern to fill up various forms, is a character typical to this style of freehand art. A beautiful and sophisticated black and white painting for your home or ideal as a gift for any occasion. Each artist has his or her own unique patterns or way of detailing - fish scales and drops of water, a line of creeping spiders, the mark of a plough on a field, the crescent moon, young shoots in a paddy field. That pattern becomes their signature and reveals the Gonds’ continuing bond with nature, a reflection of their culture where life and spirituality are inseparable from the forest and its inhabitants.
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. This extraordinary product is a must buy.
