About the Craft:: Gond painting is the folk and tribal form of art that is practiced by one of the largest tribes in India ? the Gond. The Gond, are the largest Adivasi Community in India who are predominantly from Madhya Pradesh, but can also be found in pockets of Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Chhatisgarh, and Odisha. The work of Gond artists is rooted in their folk tales and culture, based on a strong element of story-telling. According to the Gond belief system, all things are inhabited by a spirit and, consequently, are sacred. Gond paintings are a reflection of man?s close connection with his natural surroundings and very often are narratives from ancient legends, folklores, fantasies and aspirations.
