Nestled in the dense thickets of tropical Indian forests, are innumerable tribal cultures that have thrived in nature for centuries. Along the Western coast line of the country, dwell the ‘Warlis’; a prolific tribal culture renowned for the magnificent paintings that they create by hand on the walls of their mud homes in soothing earthy colours extracted from nature. In their paintings, are depicted scenes from their everyday life and nature in the simplest of shapes and forms. Dating back to 3000 B.C., the basic styles of their works of art are often compared to cave paintings from the Stone Age. Another such beautiful indigenous Indian art culture is Madhubani from Bihar, with a wide variety of colours, much sought after details and auspicious Indian excerpts as motifs in hand paintings.
Inspired from the Warlis and Madhubanis, amongst other rustic tribal painting cultures of India, ‘Tribal Tokens’ is a collection of beautiful pots and vases that have been delicately handmade in terracotta and hand painted by tribal craftspeople in the interiors of the country. The adaptation of tribal motifs and imagery from large wall canvases into miniature works of art requires immense amount of hand skill. The beautiful earthen colour palette, the simple artistic shapes and the details of miniature paintings on these pots and vases, makes them exclusive works of art that carry with them a fragment of ancient Indian indigenous life into decorative, functional products for you and your loved ones. These paintings have a delicacy of brush strokes that celebrate the imperfections of the human hand, such that the admirer can almost feel the wet soil and the plants, experience the rhythms of raw folk music and dance gatherings and other scenes of tribal life. This collection of hand-painted pots and vases is a melodic story from the Indian tribal cultures, handmade with love, to bring the raw warm ethnicity of tribal life to your favourite spaces.
