Warli Painting

Warli Paintings:

Warli paintings are folk paintings from Maharashtra and are very different from other folk and tribal paintings in India. They do not narrate mythology in primary colours as did the Madhubanis nor did it contain the robust sensuality of the paintings found in Eastern India. Instead they are painted on mud, charcoal, cowdung based surface using only white colour, and are decorated with series of dots in red and yellow.
