The word Warli comes from ‘Warla’ which means a piece of land or a field. The Warlis, an Indian tribe, live at the foot of Western Ghats in Maharashtra. Their simple wall paintings use very basic forms: a circle, a triangle and a square. The paintings indeed tell stories in a symbolic manner and represent the folklore and culture of the community.
