This Gond-Pardhan painting is an acrylic on canvas work, made by artist Mayank Shyam (b. 1987)
This painting depicts a body of water teeming with fish. Mayank Shyam found inspiration in the folktale of the Bada Dev, the main deity of the Gond-Pardhan community, that is believed to have been born as a fish in the water. The artist often bases his paintings on three elements — water, earth, and ether. He paints forms of fish, trees, and birds to represent these elements.
