Bhil Art with Alphee

Date: 16 August 2020
Starts at: 04:00 pm
Ends at: 05:30 pm

Bhils are one of the largest tribal communities of India, especially concentrated around Central India. Their folk art which often adorns the facades of their village houses is known as Bhil Art and is instantly recognisable for its colourful, exaggerated depictions of rural life. Each image is composed of a multitude of dots which come together into a beautiful whole.
