A simple piece of Warli Folk Art.
The representation of palm trees and sheaves of wheat is delightful. Villagers, one of whom is lying down, insects, birds and monkeys are scattered among the trees. White paint made from rice water is painted on a reddish brown cloth background. Signed by the artist.
