Warli Tribe 1980

The Warli are famous for their unique style of wall paintings which embellish their houses…. a vivid expression of their daily and social life and a glorification to the Gods.

The Warli paint onto a mud base on clean walls which are smeared with a paste of cow dung. Red mud is added for body and texture. Designs are painted with a mixture of pounded rice flower and milk by brushes made from twigs of wood.

Encouraged to paint on sheets of tar paper, Warli art rose to national and international prominence in 1978 through promotion from the Indian Government.
