Warli Art - Warli Village and Tarpa - Framed 21x25


Warli Village and Tarpa - Framed 21x25

Warli paintings are traditionally done on wall of the house, characterized by a typical brown or red ochre background, which is often a mixture of earth and cow dung. The paintings are created by a bamboo stick to make a paint brush using rice paste.

This painting is embodied with an amazingly modest colour palette of brown and white with the soothing and earthy tones which is the traditional color of Warli Art.

The painting depicts the flow of simple and happy life. Pictures of human beings and animals, along with scenes from daily life are created in a loose rhythmic pattern.

One of the most popular themes in Warli art is a spiral chain of humans around one central motif. This in accordance with their belief that life is an eternal journey, and it has no beginning and end. Men and women hold hands as they dance to the melodies of the tarpa, a trumpet like instrument. The dance signifies the circle of life.
