The Gond tribe has its origin in Madhya Pradesh, and derived its name from the word ‘Kond’, meaning “green mountain”. Although Gond art of this tribe is considered to be primarily from Madhya Pradesh, it is also practiced in Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, and Odisha. It dates back to more than 1400 years ago to the Mesolithic Period. The Gond people believe that every element of nature, be it the hills, the sky or the trees, is inhabited by a spirit. These paintings are examples of the Gond tribe’s close connection to nature.
In this style, the lines, the interior intricacies, the dots and dashes enhance the details with exquisite brilliance. Incorporating geometric shapes and patterns, like the ones resembling fish scales, drops of water and seed shapes flesh out the expressive value of the art. The sense of movement is established through the curves and strokes of the lines.
