Gond art from Madhya Pradesh is easily identified by its bright colours, fantastical creatures and exuberant plant forms. It is a combination of music, genealogy and mythology. Gond art blurs the boundaries between man, nature and the divine. The sacred inhabits all forms of life and is manifested in art. The main deity of the Gond community is Bada Dev (Great Lord) around whom many mythologies and much folklore is built. The Mahua and Saja treesare also important elements in Gond art, always inhabited by animals, birds and human forms.
