J. Swaminathan - 1983: « The Magical Script »
Les Hill Korwa


Drawings by the Hill Korwas of Jashpur, Raigarh, M.P.

Extrait du catalogue de la musée « Bharat Bhavan » :

«.........................
The first thing immediately noticeable in these drawings is their calligraphic character, as if the artist is not drawing but writing. The Hill Korwas have no written script and all of them who did these drawings were illiterate.
....................
When one looks at these drawings, one immediately thinks of Poul Klee’s dictum of taking the line for a walk.
.....................
In fact, one stalwart Hill Korwa with his bow and arrows in one hand and the other on his hip remarked on the drawing he did “This is my report of our sufferings to the government”
