Colors and textures in the Maharashtra countryside

5 Oct

This past weekend we set out to find the Adivasi peoples of the Jawhar region of Maharashtra, a couple hours north of Mumbai.  The Adivasi ( a general term used to describe the original people of India ) in this area are commonly referred to as Warli, however this we found was also a generalization.  The morning of the day we had arranged to visit the village and home of an Adivasi artist, we strolled through the Saturday market at the small town of Manor.

An Adivasi woman outside her colorful home.  I loved the tissue paper pendants hanging along the eaves of her porch.
