The historical evolution of ‘Gond’, or Pardhan painting or ‘Jangarh kalam,’ has to be understood in this background. A community of around four million people spread all over Central India, Gonds have a recorded history of 1400 years. The word ‘Gond’ comes from the Dravidian expression ‘Kond’ which means ‘green mountain’.

 

New opportunities have emerged for Gond artists to depict their mental map and we are delighted to be able to bring to you this exclusive range of single sheet prints available in a beautifully presented portfolio.

Description
