“Gondi art traces its origins ‘as a symbolic and decorative art used,’ according to Roma Ramchandani, ‘to bring in cheer and ward off evil at festivities, known as Dighna.’ Dighna is used to celebrate all occasions in the lives of the Gonds. The Gonds paint for decorative as well as ritualistic reasons. They also paint supernatural beings and spirits. The deer and birds are a particular favourite and they are typically shown in and around trees. Their Bada Dev along with other Gods like Ghurri Dev and Chulha Dev are often subjects of their paintings. They paint the tree in the belief that trees rise skywards and connect to the Gods. It was also in the Saja tree that Bada Dev hid and from where he descends to accept Gond offerings.”
