Visual ingenuity is not uncommon for the Pardhans of the Gond tribe ofPatangarh area of Madhya Pradesh. They smear mud paste on the floors, doors and walls of their homes and then paint motifs on them with a brush fashioned out of bamboo, using colour made from mud of different hues found in their environment.
With the Warli tribe inhabiting the Thane and Nasik areas of Maharashtra, this art can be traced back to the Neolithic era(2500-3000 BC).
Practiced by the Saura tribe of Orissa, known as one of the world’s most ancient tribes, these paintings made on the walls of their homes take root in their religious belief, superstitions and ceremonial activities to appease the demigods and spirits.
