“Simple yet enormously evocative masterpiece of visual storytelling” — Brain Pickings

“In this incredibly illustrated book , celebrated Gond artist Bajju Shyam explores the cyclical concepts of creation , evolution, death and renewal . Narrated by Gita wolf , this is a wonderful book for the curious child and adult alike.” — Masala Chai online

Silkscreen-printed by hand on handmade paper and attractively packaged, these notecards (featuring artwork from our latest book Creation) are perfect for thoughtful gifting. Created by the artisans at celebrated Indian visual art publisher Tara Books.

Lore from the Gond tribal community in central India abounds in stories of origins, transformations and endings. Celebrated Gond artist Bhajju Shyam now gathers together these tales for the first time.

From the state of Madhya Pradesh in central India, the Gonds are a community of highly visual people. They surround themselves with their stunning art, which is traditionally painted on the mud floors and walls of their homes. Cosmic acts of creation linked to everyday life processes, connecting the universe with the rhythms of human life and time.

Each boxed set features ten cards — two each of five designs — and ten envelopes. Each card measures 5 3/4 in x 5 3/4 in, and includes an insert with further information on the artist and artisans involved. Proceeds from the sale of each notecard pack support tribal & folk artists in India, as well as the skilled artisans involved in the printing process.
