Gond Art

The art of the Gond tribal community in central India is dense yet intricate and rich with meaning. The Gonds are one of India’s largest indigenous communities, and art is central to their lives. Originally painted on walls and floors, Gond art has since found its way to paper and canvas. Click here to discover other Tara projects with Gond artists.
