Painting is a medium of visual expression. It does not always need too many colors to stand out. Mandana paintings are one of such form. It is a form of tribal art in India that has survived over the ages. It is done in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh by one of the oldest tribal communities, the ‘Meenas’.
This art is done on walls and floors, both within and surrounding the house, as a way to ward off evil and welcome the blessings of gods into the home.
