Warli tribal paintings date back to 2500-3000 BCE. Tribes created these as wall murals and this style is still practiced by a tribe called Warlis, residing in Thane district of Maharashtra. They use rudimentary symbols made up of circles, squares, triangles and lines to represent human, animal and all life forms. The traditional form of this painting uses rice paste to decorate hut walls using a bamboo twig as a paint brush. Mandala paintings are concentric circles decorated using henna art motifs.

"Producing real life images has been a passion of mine for many years. My focus is to capture subjects as natural and clearly as possible. Clarity is what I generally prefer in my images. When photographing wildlife I try to capture certain behaviors and unique poses including birds feeding, fighting or moving. I enjoy photographing many different subjects but I always come back to birds because they are so fascinating and beautiful." – Michael Engelberger
