Warli- Tarpa dance

              I am so fascinated by the Warli art. With my quilling and card making I hardly find time for my other hobbies. Last week I took out my paint and brush and tried to make a simple Warli. This will be my first Warli and a painting after a long time. I really enjoyed painting these happy little people . Here you can see the people in celebration ,their dance is called tarpa .

        This extremely rudimentary wall paintings use a very basic graphic vocabulary -a circle , a triangle and a square.Warli is the name of the largest tribe found on the northern outskirts of Mumbai, in western India.

Suganthi madam

Great and fantastic effort of creating a Warli painting. Madam your warli paintings is look like real painted by warli tribe people of maharashtra.

Madam these are my Warli paintings greetings cards which i shared in my Heritage of India blog.

Madam recently i gave my first seminar on indian heritage and culture.

Madam 2 months back i am sharing one message in my blog with the title "Indian woman in 19th century vintage post cards". Madam in this message i am tryig to compare as how indian woman got respect until recent times and compare the same situations with present day disastrous situations by mentioning about delhi incident.

madam this is the link for this message.

Suganthi madam i request you please look into my above messages and also some other messages of my blog and share your valuable comments.
