Traditional art - warli

Warli art started in rural maharashtra,when tribals wanted to decorate their mud houses.since these tribals were also iliterate,they needed to express themselves and it gave them the freedom to do so.Birth,death,marriage celebration,harvest season etc; are usually depicted in this form of art. .It mostly involved human figures doing the usual chores.

what started in the rural areas has now become so popular,that it is found almost everywhere. Iam sharing with you, warli art on table mats, coasters and even earthen handis and spatulas
