Resurgence -

As I have said before, Resurgence is a wonderful magazine.

Here is an excerpt from one article.

Spirit Sanctuaries

Tishani Doshi reviews The Night Life of Trees, which features paintings by three of the finest Gond artists, Ram Singh Urveti, Durga Bai and Bhajju Shyam.

"For the forest-dwelling Gond tribe of Central India, it is inconceivable to make a painting without a tree in it. So central are trees to the Gond ethos and cosmology that they are worshipped as life-givers, sanctuaries for spirits, on equal footing with the gods."

The book provides a rare glimpse into the visual and poetic traditions of the Gond people. It entices us into a world where the practical, aesthetic and spiritual are inseparable and invites us to re-evaluate the role of trees in our own lives.

"Night Life may not convert you into a certified tree-hugger, but it will force you to think about a special tree in your life; how it too can become a deer with twelve horns."
