Tales On Silk

Tales On Silk is a shop with a love for showcasing lesser known tribal arts of India to the world. Their effort for creating tribal art inspired, and contemporary home decor pieces do tell a story of the artist who created them is invaluable. They focus on the art of the Gond. One of the largest tribes in India that can be traced back to the pre-Aryan era.

Back in the day, the Gond tribe painted their walls with vibrant depictions of local flora, fauna, and gods. Traditionally made on festive occasions, these paintings depict various celebrations, rituals and man’s relationship with nature. They also use natural colors derived from charcoal, colored soil, plant sap, leaves, and cow dung to deliver this art.

In Conversation

This vibrant motif shows a conversation between two trees. They reminisce about the time when everyone – man, trees, animals lived in perfect harmony. There was forest everywhere and now wherever you look the only one you see is the man.

 

 

Herd of Elephants

A normally happy herd of Elephants taking some drastic steps to save their home. The herd of elephants thought that they should carry the forest with them. Because the forests are their home and are being destroyed by humans. So, they believe that by simply carrying it, they would not be harassed by humans and can live happily.

 

 

Fish in a Pond

“Fish in a pond” is an inspired from the pond in this his village. It is a take on a narrow worldview from the perspective of a fish which can never leave the pond and not know what lies beyond it.
