This art form is personally close to me because it belongs to my birthplace. Mud and Mirror Work (also known as Lipan Kaam) is a traditional mural craft of Kutch, Gujarat, India. Lippan or mud-washing using materials locally available in the region like a mixture of clay and camel dung keeps the interiors of the houses cool. Though the work is limited mainly to the interior walls, it can be found on the outer walls as well.
These scintillating murals bring life, gaiety, and beauty to the generally harsh life of the people of Kutch. Mud and Mirror Work is mainly done by the women of the Rabari community. The women are so experienced in this art form that they usually don’t draw or trace a pattern before beginning work. Rabari is the pastoral community of Kutch, living in the outskirts of its villages. They dwell in a few clusters of communal or family houses known as Bhungas which are designed and built to take care of their practical needs in the harsh climate of Kutch.
Mud mirror work has gathered the attention of the modern world for its intricate pattern and aesthetic perfection and has made a full transition from its unknown modest stature to the mainstream art world, decorating the walls of urban homes. Traditionally mud art is done on white surfaces with white mud and mirrors of different sizes and shapes but here I have used clay and mirrors on a colorful background.
