One morning, a mother and child go in search of the sun. Will they find it? The simple story is based on a traditional painting by a master Warli artist, with illustrations extracted from the original spectacular canvas.
One morning, a mother and child go in search of the sun. Their journey comes alive in a vast dotted landscape where lively birds, quick-footed animals and busy humans meet and share the forest, the river and the mountain… Where's the Sun? is a collaboration between a master Warli artist, a design student of IDC, IIT Mumbai, and the publishers. Roma Singh met Janu Bhiva Ravate at the Warli village in Maharashtra and sent photographs of his paintings to Tulika. The incredible detail and humour of his paintings inspired editor and writer, Niveditha Subramaniam, to string together this story, which the artist then recreated as one large painting on canvas.
