HANDPAINTED UNIQUE PIECES.
ONLY 1 AVAILABLE PER PIECE.
These are very special works of art created by women painters of Hazaribagh, one of India’s least known art paradises and home to many tribes and ethnic communities.
Each year, during the seasons of marriage and harvest, the women artists lovingly give life to the flora and fauna that permeate the earthen walls of their homes. Flowers, birds, and magnificent beasts flourish and abound. As keepers of symbols and traditions, their aspiration is to perpetuate tribal consciousness and the deep harmony of their folklore and way of life for generations yet to come.
These “mud paintings on paper” was an initiative by Bulu Imam. Since the traditional earthen walls are being replaced with cement, transporting the women’s artistry to paper helps preserve the Khovar and Sohrai traditions in situ.
65% of the proceeds will go to not-for-profit association, Femmes du Hazaribagh, whose mission is to preserve this endangered tribal heritage by providing financial support for material costs and compensations for the women artists.
