Civilisations across the world have more often than not, documented community celebrations in their art-forms. The coming together of people, laughter, music, dancing and the sharing of happiness & good vibes has forever been an important part of every culture; details and elements of these celebrations transcending into forms of indigenous paintings and material crafts. One of the very eminent tribal communities in India are the the Warlis, who are renowned for their indigenous style of stick-figure painting that they make by hand on mud walls of their homes mostly depicting happiness, festivity and community carnivals. Dating back to almost 3000 B.C., their paintings are often compared with prehistoric cave paintings because of the simple style, easy translation and use of pastel natural colours and patterns.
