The rich cultural tradition of the Bhils of Madhya Pradesh is manifest in their rituals, their songs, and dances, their community deities, tattoos, myths, and lore. Their homes reveal an innate sense of aesthetics. Walls are plastered every year and decorated with clay relief work, mittichitra, and paintings.
The material used for painting is simple, homemade – pigments extracted from the leaves and flowers of various plants, daubed on with brushes made of rag or a cotton swabs fastened to twigs of neem. But today these colors are replaced with Acrylic colors.
Everything connected with the Bhil life is painted – the Sun, the Moon, the animals, trees, insects, rivers, fields, mythological figures, the god, Bhilvat Deo Baramathya, who has twelve heads, Ektangya, who has only one leg.
It's an Interesting play of colors creating dotted illusions.
