Warli painting is a tribal art predominantly done by the indigenous tribe of Adivasis, living in the mountainous and coastal areas of the Maharashtra-Gujarat border. The rudimentary wall paintings use a very basic graphic vocabulary: a circle, a triangle and a square. Warli tells a story of domestic and social life.  Images of people and animals, along with scenes from daily life are created in a loose rhythmic pattern. The themes are highly repetitive and symbolic. Many of the Warli paintings that represent Palghat, the marriage god, often include a horse used by the bride and groom. The painting is sacred and without it, the marriage cannot take place. The paintings also serve social and religious aspirations of the local people. It is believed that these paintings invoke powers of the Gods.
