Warli art is a unique indigenous art form that got its name from Warli tribes of the Indian state of Maharashtra. This art form has a close connection with the Neolithic cave/rock paintings of Central India dating back to 3000 to 2500 BCE. We believe that this is an extraordinary piece of heritage to be conserved for the world.
WE HAVE COLLABORATED WITH THE INDIGENOUS WARLI ARTISTS TO BRING THE ART IN ITS ORIGINAL FORM TO AUSTRALIA.
September to November is festive season in India. It is about colours, rituals, lights, energy and enthusiasm; time for biggest festivals of the year like Durga Puja/Navratri (celebration of the feminine power and victory of good over evil), Deepawali (festival of lights) and more. Close on its heels, we celebrate Christmas together both here in Australia and there in India. Thus, as part of our ongoing Maya Fest 2019, we are glad to showcase authentic Warli arts which have arrived straight from the tribal village of the Warlis....
This is protected with Geographical Indication (GI) - which means not any artworks can be called as Warli art if it does not originate from that specific region.
We are also thankful to SBI (Australia) for kindly supporting this initiative and thankful to the artists for their beautiful creations.
