According to the belief of the Gond tribal people, badadev hid in the saja tree and he descends from there to accept the Gond offerings. The painting is made in a belief that the trees rise towards the sky and connect them to the gods. Here we can see badadev depicted in the form of a tree itself, with the branches of trees and peacock merging with him. this merger depicts the interdependence of the plants and animals. The lines are used in such a way that they convey a sense of motion to the painting. Saroj ji has a signature style used to fill in the paintings – the nagavanshi style. It comprises of a snake-like pattern. She uses this to distinguish her paintings from the other gond artists. The painting is a mode of worshiping nature and warding off evil.
Saroj Venkat Shyam belongs to the Pardhan Gond tribal community and was born in village Patangarh, district Dindori, Madhya Pradesh. She has been practising Gond art for the last 20 years and has exhibited internationally and also conducted many gond art workshops in India.
In the depths of Madhya Pradesh, India, beats the heart of the Gonds- a tribe as old as time. As the community bard (singers) or Pardhan invokes their Great God- Bada Deo- while playing the Bana instrument, he fulfills the crucial task of keeping alive the legendary tales of the ancient Gond kings. Every story, song, dance, and painting brings the community together in a shared celebration of nature and the universe. The Gond tribe has several branches or gotras, each with its own story of origin. The Pardhans, they say, are descended from the youngest of seven Gond brothers who became a priest and a storyteller on the instruction of Bada Deo. As the ancient tribal fable unfolds in the 21st century, the gond artist’s vivid paintings narrate tales of their faiths and beliefs, world view, their visual expression and sense of identity - both as a collective , and as individuals. Vibrant colours and animated motifs filled with intricate patterns of dots and dashes bring their mythical jungle to life. Trees, animals, birds, the sky, water, and earth sway and dance to the rhythm of the Pardhan’s tunes and brush strokes. Gond traditions and fables are a reflection of man’s close connection with his natural surroundings. The Gond painting transports you to the seamless world of the imaginative and the surprising.
