Indian Traditional Painting - GOND Art
Gond Art is one of the Indian Traditional Art forms done by Gonds who are among the largest tribes of Madhya Pradesh in Central India. The word Gond comes from Dravidian expression “Kond” meaning The Green Mountains. The Gonds paint their walls and floors with vibrant images of Flowers, Trees, Animals, Nature and Gods. Traditionally it is made on festivals like Diwali, Karva Chauth etc.
This mystical art form is created by putting together lines and dots. The imaginative use of line imparts a sense of movement to the still images. The artists traditionally use natural colors derived from colored soil, charcoal, leaves etc. Gond Art comes with a belief that a good image brings good luck.
