Hey there!! Its been such a long break and I am finally back to post more: this time again on Warli.

Its these few pictures that I managed to take when I passed by  this theme-based restaurant called "Naati Mane" in Bangalore which had a village ambience as it was entirely painted with Warli from the outside. Everyone is into Warli these days!! Its really nice to see the popularity of Warli art growing and I am really happy to be able to contribute my bit to it too :)

The Chowkat in Warli showing two women of the Warli tribe preparing for a Puja (a religious ceremony), Warli sun  and an elephant in Warli.

The members of the Warli tribe dancing (below the exhaust fan of the kitchen)

Warli women at work

The Warli Sun, an elephant

A Warli household

A Warli farmer working in the fields

Animals in Warli art: A bird, monkeys and deer

 The following two pictures would have been nice if it wasn't for the damage that has been done. Its really sad that many are ignorant about the value of these ancient art forms and besides don't even make it a point to keep the surroundings clean.
