Gond comes from the word Kond, which means green mountains. Gond tribe lives in the hilly and forest areas of Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, and Orissa. Gond art represents the love for nature and daily activities of Gond. The use of dots and patterns is popular for detailing in Gond artwork. Modern and contemporary Gond art also includes depicting modern inventions like airplanes. The Gond tribe considers the Mahua tree as a life-giving tree so it is an important motif in the Gond Art.

The Circle Community brings a curated Gond Art Workshop with the Yamuna.
