About the Artwork +

Hafiz Mutva’s Lippan art piece, a square mudwork creation, exudes a timeless beauty through its intricate design and reflective elements. Dominated by a pristine white hue, this artwork features traditional floral patterns meticulously crafted from brown clay, which adds depth and contrast to the piece. At the heart of this elegant composition lies a central white circle, adorned with uniformly placed mirrors arranged in a harmonious floral pattern. The mirrors catch the light, adding a dynamic, shimmering quality to the artwork, creating a mesmerizing interplay of reflections that captivate the viewer. The floral motifs, delicately rendered in the mudwork, exhibit a rich texture and a sense of organic fluidity, embodying the traditional craftsmanship of Lippan art. The brown clay used to accentuate these designs provides a warm, earthy tone that enhances the overall aesthetic appeal of the piece. The juxtaposition of the stark white background with the natural brown elements and the glittering mirrors results in a visually striking and balanced composition. This art piece by Hafiz Mutva is not just a display of technical skill but also a celebration of traditional artistry, offering a serene and beautiful tableau that draws viewers into its reflective depths. The combination of color, texture, and reflective surfaces makes this Lippan art a captivating and exquisite representation of cultural heritage.

Lippan Kaam


Lippan art, also known as Mud and Mirror work, is a traditional Indian craft that has its roots in the desert region of Kutch, in the state of Gujarat. This unique art form involves intricate designs created using a combination of clay and mirror pieces, resulting in beautiful decorative patterns that adorn walls and other surfaces.  History and Tradition The tradition of Lippan art in India dates back several centuries, with its exact origins shrouded in mystery. It is believed to have emerged among the Rabari community, a nomadic pastoralist group in Gujarat. Lippan art was traditionally used to decorate the walls of Bhungas, circular mud huts typical of Kutch architecture. These intricate designs not only served an aesthetic purpose but also had symbolic meanings, often reflecting themes related to nature, animals, and daily life. The inclusion of mirrors in the designs is thought to have both practical and spiritual significance, reflecting light and warding off evil spirits. Legend According to local legend, the use of mirrors in Lippan art has its origins in a mystical story. It is said that a young shepherd once found a piece of broken mirror in the desert and used it to decorate his hut. When the sunlight reflected off the mirror, it illuminated the surrounding area, attracting the attention of the local community. This led to the integration of mirrors into traditional mud designs, giving rise to the unique aesthetic that is now synonymous with Lippan art. Technique and Details The technique of Lippan art involves creating intricate patterns using a mixture of mud and camel dung, which serves as the base material. The process begins with preparing the even mud wall or panel surface where designs are outlined with thin threads or chalk. The artisans apply a mixture of clay and camel dung to create raised patterns or designs, with the mirrors serving as focal points within the patterns. Once the design is complete, the mud is allowed to dry and harden, resulting in a durable and visually stunning artwork. The primary characteristic of Lippan art is the use of mirrors, which are cut into various shapes and embedded into the mud designs. The designs often feature geometric shapes, floral motifs, animal figures, and traditional symbols. Some of the notable Lippan artisans are Nalemitha, Majikhan, and Hafiz Mutva, amongst others.
