This Gond tribal painting is one of a kind, hand painted by Dilip Shyam, the Gond artist of Madhya Pradesh, India.

The Elephant is a status symbol and this Gond painting does it justice. Elephants are highly regarded everywhere but more especially so in India and among the Gonds. This painting represents two elephants, one bigger than the other. This could mean an elder-younger relationship or a husband-wife relationship. The implied wealth of the figures is, however, more important than their exact identities.

Elephants symbolizes wealth, power, wisdom, gentleness and authority. This painting describes all these with its lively color and its texture. Add to these, the peacock wings drawn on the elephants and the attribute of pride in one’s beauty is also represented. Gonds are found of including the imagery of birds into the paintings of other animals.
