25/3-2 And then the walls echoed

Next are these Muriya Paintings from Chattisgarh. Painted by Meheru Netam, this form of art is inspired from Warli as is visible. “This kind of paintings depicts pictures of traditional tribal rituals. Most of the paintings are related to the celebrations of their customary ceremonies. The walls and the floors are painted with vibrant colors making a brilliant picturesque view” [Mapsofindia.com, 2017]IMG20170104105037.jpg

Next are these wall paintings from Odisha huts. Known as Saura Paintings, these also resemble Warli to a great extent and its still a mystery how this migration of these memes happened. “The Saura paintings are intimately related to religious beliefs and drawn in order to appease demigods and spirits. On the occasion of animal sacrifices, the Sauras draw ittals on their walls. The themes of these paintings are usually dream sequences.” [Odisha.gov.in, 2017]
