The wall paintings of the Warli people of Maharashtra are famous worldwide for their simplicity and their liveliness. Beginning with the story of little Shirvi who wants to give her parents a happy surprise, author Shamim Padamsee takes a whimsical journey into how the art may have been born. And along that journey, Shirvi meets the magical moon people...

An interesting read

This book is an interesting read and definitely makes a great introduction to one of the most animated and lively forms of traditional art in India. Truly, the buoyancy in the Warli art makes the canvas come alive with all the dancing not just on the wall but also reflected in the eyes and the mind of the beholder!
