In this canvas painting, Gond art gets a fitting reflection. The tree and two deer are nicely painted in traditional Gond art form. Nature has been the dominating motif in the Gond tribal art form and a symbiotic relationship between human beings and nature is reflected in all their art forms. Gond paintings are a form of painting from folk and tribal art that is practised by one of the largest tribes in India. Gond comes from the Dravidian expression, Kond which means 'the green mountain’ as they live by the mountains. Here simplicity of Gond people, their love for and closeness to nature has been portrayed in an apt manner. Gonds, the largest Adivasi Community in India are of Dravidian origin and can be traced to the pre-Aryan era. Through their festivals and rituals, songs and dances, they remained rooted in their culture. When their young men in large numbers started leaving for the cities in search of work, these cultural roots were threatened.
