Warli Guys on my wall

I have always loved Warli Paintings for the simplicity and yet the extreme folk beauty it eludes. The first time I saw these Warli paintings was in this amazing Punjabi restaurant called 'Treat'. Treat for the tongue and eyes. They have these beautifully simple paintings on their walls and I always wondered what they were called. One night after having dinner from this restaurant I came back and googled - "paintings drawn with two triangles" and Voila! I found the name - Warli!

Warli Paintings are basically wall paintings done by Warli tribes of Maharashtra. These are simple painting drawn with basic geometric shapes such as triangles, squares and circles and mostly
depicts festivals, hunting, fishing etc.

I have been following some super awesome design blogs and got inspired to get some Warli guys on my balcony wall and here it is for you all to see :-)
