Inspiring Maharashtra

The ITC Maratha, one of Mumbai’s finest luxury business hotels, celebrated Maharashtra Day with a lavish spread of authentic Maharashtrian cuisine.

A truly traditional menu deserved a truly traditional showcase. This emerged in the form of a mind map of Maharashtra, depicted in an ancient tribal art form – Warli. Warli dates back to the Neolithic period between 2500 and 3000 BC. These paintings were made using white rice paste on walls smeared with cow dung and red mud.

Created in much the same way, the poster took international guests on a journey of discovery. Not only of Maharashtra, but the inspiration behind its rich and celebrated cuisine. Besides helping them realise there’s more to Indian food than curry.
