The Gond are a group of aboriginal peoples in central India. The artists strive to depict the links between nature and man. Their homes are traditionally decorated with beautiful paintings made for celebrations like weddings or festivals. Initially, their paint brushes were twigs wrapped in old cloth, and pigments were made from flowers, leaves, stones, rice, turmeric, clay, and more. Today, Gond artists use inks and acrylics to pay homage to their rich culture.
