|| Hirna Mrigna, Gond ||



A Rousseau-esque jungle scene or A Song of Ice and Fire?! 

The background reminds us of Rudolf Stingel’s Untitled work (.1993) on display at the Tate Modern, London! 🧡

This painting titled “Bagh aur Hirna-Mirga” invites the viewers to decide if it’s a depiction of an unlikely friendship between a tiger and a deer? 

Or is it a deer figuring out its identity - does it see itself as a Hirna (हिरण/deer) or as a Mirga (बाघ का शिकार/prey of the tiger)? 

Or is it a case of ‘may the best mind win!’? The animals with their respective strengths sizing each other up! Will the deer’s wit and flight out power the tiger? Or will the brute strength & stealth of the tiger prevail?!


Gond tribals believe that seeing positive imagery brings good fortune.
