A video of Warli painting

Today we are going to watch a video that I shot a few months back.

A Warli painter was demonstrating his skills. I asked him to tell history of Warli paintings so that I can record and show to the world. To say he was very happy, would be an understatement. 😀

When I requested him to narrate in Hindi for a broader audience, he readily agreed. Normally he does it in Marathi, his mother tongue.

He was very excited. It’s not a surprise that he was able to sell a few pieces to us. 😀
And I don’t mind spending a few hundreds to encourage or help the locals.

What do you think why would we do so ?

Note:- The Warli paintings are always based on a theme or a story. The main characters are made of triangles & circles. More on this later.

  2. This was so fascinating!! I loved the insight into the Warli paintings- and can’t wait to hear more on that later.
    On a side note, My daughter’s future mother-in-law speaks Marathi.
