About the Painting:
Gond paintings are traditional art of the Gond tribes residing over the entire Madhya Pradesh region in India. The painting broadly is divided into Digna and Bhittichitra. Digna is a traditional geometric pattern on the walls and floors of houses. Bhittichitra is painted on the walls of houses, and these paintings include images of animals, plants, and trees. Natural colors are used in painting the walls and floors of homes generally by women.
Gond paintings are a form of painting from folk and tribal art that is practiced by one of the largest tribes in India with whom it shares its name. Gond comes from the Dravidian expression, Kond which means ‘the green mountain’. While Gond paintings are considered to be from predominantly from Madhya Pradesh, it is also quite common in Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Chhatisgarh, and Odisha. Gond art has become so predominant that the Government of India has stepped in to preserve its art form for future generations to enjoy.
Gond paintings are of such good quality that it isn’t uncommon for them to last 20 years or so, without any external tampering.
