Warli folk paintings made by the largest tribe in Maharashtra. Often painted on walls, they are a vivid monochrome expression of daily and social events of the tribe and provide the means of transmitting folklore to a once non-literate community. “Warli” come from the word “warla” which means the piece of land.
