You are very true Elena, my art work is basically a tribal painting but it is not from the state of Orissa, but from Maharashtra, where we have the metro city Mumbai/ Bombay. but there is striking similarity in the tribal painting of both orissa region and warli painting. Well spotted. I hope u enjoyed ur trip to India.
