Bullock Carts & Oil Mills in Applique! 

An endearing naive  2-dimensional rendering of bullock cart & a bullock-run oil press or oil mill!



And the featute that makes me wonder about the Banjara connection is the white triangle border … 


The text is the name of a lady – probably the artist – in Gujarati script. 

Quite a delightful rural figurative work of art with scenes that are getting rarer and earer in real life!

    I am intrigued by that small stitched triangle on the peak of the appliqued triangles. It’s a charming detail.

I'd love to hear your view on this. Please comment below:
