Welcome to "Stripes" – our art gallery that pays tribute to the beauty of tigers. Just as the stripes of every tiger are unique, so is the artwork in our gallery. Each artwork represents the connection between our imagination, creativity, and the natural world.
While browsing the gallery, you will find four sections, each inspired by a distinct Indian art form. Join us to be amazed by the intricate patterns of Gond and Madhubani art, relive the joy of creating colourful dots in Bhil art, and observe the primitive nature of Warli art.
"I want you to take a few minutes to take in the mysticism of these drawings. Aren’t they beautiful! Even though we did not intend on connecting our tigers with the elements of Earth, most of us ended up doing that. I think that is the magic of Gond art. I am grateful to the Gond tribe for sharing Gond art with us, all the way from Madhya Pradesh!
Another beautiful part about Gond art is making detailed patterns from our imagination. It took us patience and time to make these drawings but it was a lot of fun."
"Let us look closely at some of these drawings. What is common in all of them? If you said the double outlining, you guessed it right!
The double outline and intricate patterns are a prominent feature of Madhubani art. It is named after the Madhubani district of Bihar, where it originated."
"These are drawings that my friends and I created. They are inspired by our favourite feature of Bhil art, that is, creating art with colourful dots!
Bhil art is created by the Bhil tribe, who are one of the largest indigenous communities of India. They mainly live in parts of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Gujarat, and Maharashtra."
"It’s time for our last stop. These drawings remind me of cave paintings. The reason is because Warli art was created by early humans, making it one of the first forms of art in the history of human kind! Isn’t that amazing!
Today, Warli art is majorly found on brown and red walls of the buildings and homes in Maharashtra."
