Painted Prayers: From the Bhil Imagination
Painting is a form of prayer for the Bhil, one on India's predominant tribes. Every year, they paint their walls with 'pithoras', as offerings to the goddess. Illustrations from everyday life are painted with neem twig-brushes and natural pigments, on a fresh layer of clay and cowdung, in complex dotted patterns.
