Lippan Kam is derived from two words, Lippan meaning' mud washing' and Kam meaning 'work' in Gujarati. Lippan Kam is a traditional mural art made of clay. Though its origin is unclear, it is believed to be developed in the Kutch area of Gujarat, thus gradually paving its way into Maharashtra. Traditional art and craft being an important aspect of Nagpur, the city is highly regarded for its preservation efforts. The royal house of the Bhonsales and common people patronized the tradition of painting in Nagpur. Lippan and Warli arts are the lauded creative marvels, which are commonly used to decorate the walls. These types of mud work crafts easily adapt to photo frames, mirrors, nameplates, etc., as they add an unconventional style to one's households or personal spaces. Lippan work is a beautiful representation of the state's flora and fauna and its cultural legacy. This unique art has been practiced by artisan Mrs. Vaishali Kawre from Creative Craft Art Center, Nagpur, for decades.
