Gond art is a form of painting from folk and tribal art that is practiced by Gond tribals in India. They are primarily from Madhya Pradesh but are also found in Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, and Odisha. Gond painting is a famous folk art of the Gond tribal community of central India. The work of Gond artists is rooted in their folk tales and culture, and thus storytelling is a strong element of every painting. Each painting is uniquely hand-painted using organic colors like charcoal, colored soil, plant sap, mud, flowers, leaves, and even cow dung. It is an Exclusive Show-Piece for your Drawing Room. About the painting: • Crabs are a symbol of defense.

Details of the tribe:-
Gond tribes are a group of indigenous peoples of central and south-central India, about two million in number.
They live in the states of Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, and Odisha. The majority speak variously and, in part, the mutually unintelligible language of Gondi, an unwritten language of the Dravidian family. Some Gond has lost their language and speaks Hindi, Marathi, or Telugu, depending on which is dominant in their area.
