Tribal Art in Eco Park

We are decorating Entry Plaza of Gate 4 with tribal art. We decided few weeks ago in consultation with Mr Gopal Poddar of Karigar Hat to have Warli Paintings on the walls which are a rich terracotta colour. The paintings started and I give below two photographs taken on my iPhone yesterday.

The Wikipedia says this about Warli art: "..Their extremely rudimentary wall paintings use a very basic graphic vocabulary: a circle, a triangle and a square. Their paintings were monosyllabic. The circle and triangle come from their observation of nature, the circle representing the sun and the moon, the triangle derived from mountains and pointed trees. Only the square seems to obey a different logic and seems to be a human invention, indicating a sacred enclosure or a piece of land.." [More at ]

We have also decided to use sheet metal of Bastar, Chhattisgarh to make a gate at Entry Plaza. I had seen one such beautiful gate at Raipur's Urja Park some months ago and liked it a lot.
