Warli paintings is a form of art which mostly belongs to Adivasis. It originated in Maharashtra and is very famous in Jawhar. In these paintings, only white colour is used which is mixed with rice paste and water. Then, on a red background, some intricate designs are drawn symbolising something. The basic structure remains same which is a circle, square or a triangle. Sometimes, they also depict humans engaging in activities like hunting, dancing or harvesting. Instead of a paint brush, a bamboo stick is used.
