Warli Art - Tree of Life and Tarpa and Warli Village - 24x36


Warli Art- Tree of Life and Tarpa - 24x36

Warlis live in thatched mud huts. The walls of these huts are embellished with their art. These paintings depict the scenes from their social life, where women at their daily household chore, men at their respective vocation, babies in their cradles, animals and birds like peacocks, hens, cows, birds all come together in a loose rhythmic pattern.

Tree of life represents mother nature, full of joy and strength. The Warli culture is centered around the concept of Mother Nature, and the elements of nature are often focal points depicted in Warli paintings.

One of the central aspects depicted in many Warli paintings is the tarpa dance. The tarpa, a trumpet-like instrument, is played in turns by different village men. Men and women entwine their hands and move in a circle around the tarpa player. The dancers then follow him, turning and moving as he turns, never turning their backs to the tarpa. The musician plays two different notes, which direct the head dancer to either move clockwise or counterclockwise. The circle formation of the dancers is also said to resemble the circle of life.
