About
the Craft:

Gond
painting comes from a namesake tribe of Madhya Pradesh; Gond painting
derives its name from the Dravidian expression Kond, which means “the green
mountain”.

The Gond tribes believe that everything in nature is inhabited by sacred
spirits. Hence, they painted natural elements such as trees, animals, rivers
and mountains as a sign of reverence and respect. In addition to nature, Gond
paintings are inspired by Indian mythology, the daily tribal domestic scenes,
abstract emotions and dreams.

Gond paintings are known for their precision of outlines that are filled with
dot and dashes, which make them look fluid and alive. Striking colors such as
red, blue, white and yellow are used to impart vividness to the paintings.
