Tiger and the Forest - Original Art


Santosh Maravi is an emerging Gond artist, who apprenticed under Mayank Jangarh Shyam. We did a fascinating interview with him, which you can read here. Santosh creates imagery with powerful stories behind them. We are thrilled to give you the opportunity to purchase some of Santosh’s work from us.

This painting is titled “Tiger and the forest”. As a young person living in the village, Santosh was told that there was a lush green forest everywhere full of trees and  wild animals such as the tiger. The painting expresses Santosh's melancholy at the loss of the forest. It is also painted from the tiger's perspective, where the tiger wonders if he could carry his beloved forest with him. He is looking back to see what he had before and he is trying to move forward.
