Art History - The Gonds are among the largest tribes in Central India. Though predominantly centered in Madhya Pradesh, they are present in significant numbers in the states of Madhya Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh and Odisha. They paint their walls with vibrant depictions of local flora, fauna and gods. The Gond tribe believed " viewing a good image begets good luck". The central theme of most of the paintings is flora and fauna. Gond paintings also depict various celebrations, rituals and man's relationship with nature.
The Gond tribal community has a unique painting style that makes extensive use of dots, fine lines, dashes and other geometric shapes like elliptical, triangular and oval, which add depth and texture. The Gond painters are traditionally known for filling the surface of the subjects of their paintings with some unique motifs. The forms, shapes, and sizes of the motifs of their paintings are highly influenced by nature, beliefs, folklore, culture and traditions of the community. These paintings are borderless and are based on the elaboration of the dots. The beautifully patterned pictures bring alive the Gond culture.This painting is the original work of renowned Gond artist, Choti Tekam. The painting is signed by the artist.
