Under the watchful eye of an expert, we will create our very own tribal artwork known as the Warliart. Warliart is a beautiful folk art of Maharashtra. The most important aspect of the painting is that it does not depict mythological characters or images of deities, but community life.
The Warlis or Varlis are an indigenous tribe living in mountainous as well as coastal areas of Maharashtra and Gujarat. They speak an unwritten Varlilanguage which belongs to the southern zone of the Indo-Aryan languages. The wall paintings by the Warlisuse a very basic graphic vocabulary: a circle, a triangle and a square. The circle and triangle come from their observation of nature –the circle representing the sun and the moon, the triangle derived from mountains and pointed trees.
