The Warli tribe of Maharashtra, one of the largest tribes of India created this style of paintings in the 10 th century AD. These paintings are done on the walls of the hut and the colour of the hut is sometimes created for particular paintings of weddings, festivals and harvest. The colour is made from mixing rice dust and water, cow-dung and charcoal and gum is used to bind the colour before applying it on the canvas with brushes with occasional use of white acrylic. The different geometric shapes of circles, squares and triangles are used to denote different elements of nature. The organic colour, the natural background of the paintings is used to create masterpieces that encompass a complete picture of the scene that it describes: the essence of rural life in its myriad moods and scenes of human experiences; dancing, farming, hunting and other village scenes.
