Lippan Art

Hi! I am Bhartiben a Lippan artist & I present an art from Kutch. Lippan kaam, or mud and mirror art, is a traditional Kutch mural craft.The majority of the people live in Bhungas, which are circular mud dwellings with thatched roofs. These structures have evolved over time to withstand Kutch's harsh weather conditions. Decorative mud-mirror work adorns the interior walls of the residences. With just a single lamp, the glistening mirrors in the mud-relief work brighten up the interiors of the houses. Mirrors are used as a vital component of their embroidery and walls because they are thought to fight off evil.

To keep termites at bay, Lippan Kaam traditionally uses a dough made from animal dung and mud or clay purchased from the Rann of Kutch and the Kutch region's lakes; husk of bajra or millet was used as an alternative to dung.
