Pithora ritualistic paintings are wall murals, practiced by the Rathwa, Bhil and Nayak tribes of Gujarat. They are found in Panchmahal, Dahod and Chota Udepur. These paintings are usually done by men. They are symbolic of some auspicious occasion in the community such as weddings and childbirth. There is a distinct border pattern within which the painting is executed. The colours are prepared by mixing pigments with milk and liquor prepared from auspicious Mahudo tree. The tools for painting are made from simple elements like bamboo, wood, and cotton. The act of painting on the wall is seen as a ritualistric activity and is accompanied by beating of the drums, dance, narration in which the entire community participates. It is characterized by the usage of vivid colours and folk iconography. The influences of oral legacy and traditional art history of the tribal community can be seen coming to life in these wall murals.
