Bada Dev is the omnipresent creator of the Gond-Pradhan community in Madhya Pradesh. They believe he resides in the Saja tree, which grows abundantly in the forests surrounding their homes. Ram Singh Urveti invokes the deity in most of his paintings. Here, Bada Dev emerges from the centre of a Saja tree surrounded by the animals who feature in the Gond creation myth.
