GOND ART. ARTIST IS DILIP SHYAM. The composition seems to spring from the centre point depicting the Earth Goddess. The Ganja
bush and Mahua trees are shown in full exuberance, stemming from the body of the Goddess and forming the backdrop. A favourite of the Gonds, the intoxicating flowers from the Mahua tree and the leaves of the Ganja bush are used as a libation in rituals and also for brewing country liquor. The eyes of the central figure seem to hold an arresting gaze, drawing the viewer into a visual exchange. The figures of the Hindu deities Shiva and Parvati have been assimilated by seating them on either side of the Goddess, depicted by local visual motifs. The minute yet detailed patterns
abound in this composition and seem to pull the viewer deeper into its maze like composition. Artist Dilip Shyam belongs to the family of Jangarh Singh Shyam, the contemporary Gond master painter of the 20th century.
