India has a rich tradition of folk art that can be traced back to 3rd millennium B.C., in the pre-historic settlements. One such art form is Warli Art, this ancient and beautiful folk art originates from the Northern Sahyadri range in Maharashtra, traditionally practiced by tribal women. This art was first introduced in the 70's and after that, named it "Warli" art. Tribal people express themselves in vivid styles through paintings, which they execute on the walls of their house. The most important aspect of Warli art is, it doesn't depict mythological characters or images of deities, but depicts social life. Warli painting beautifully executes loose rhythmic patterns with pictures of human beings and animals in daily life scenes such as hunting, dancing, sowing, and harvesting. These tribes are forest-dwellers but have made a gradual transition towards being a pastoral community. The developing reputation and commercialization of the Warli painting have seen upraise of numerous tribes and they are progressively getting incorporated with modern society.
