Bhuri Bai

Bhuri Bai is a Bhil tribal artist, from Jhabua District of western Madhya Pradesh . Her near pointilistic style is so very similar to Australian Aboriginal Art....! Not surprising, really, considering the word Gondwanaland which is sometimes used to geologically describe Australia, is from the Sanskrit, meaning 'Forests of the Gonds'. 


One of Bhuri bai's works has been auctioned at Sothebys.
