Bhil Painting - 5.5" x 14.5"
Beautiful curation of Bhil Paintings by Geeta Bariya
Bhil painting comes to us from central India. The Bhil tribals are one of the largest tribal groups of central India. Though very similar to Gond Art, Bhil art differs in its use of dots as opposed to patterns in the forms they create. Both are tribal art forms therefore the creations seem to be very similar, mostly around animal forms, but the patterning so to speak is very different. Bhil is closer to aboriginal art of Australia, in the use of dots, than gond painting.
