Bhill Painting 001


In the cultural tradition of the BHILLS of Madhya Pradesh, Pithora horses are painted usually on the walls of their home by the traditional painter as an offering to their devas. As the story goes, in the kingdom of Dharmi Raja, people had forgotten how to laugh or sing and dance. Pithora, the prince, then undertakes a journey on horseback to the abode of the goddess Himali Harda, who gives them back their laughter, songs, and dance. Pithora wall paintings depict this Bhil myth.
