Lippan kaam or Lippan work is a traditional art form from Western India and is mainly done by women of the Rabari community of Kutch, Gujrat. This mud relief work is done on the inside mud walls of bhungas (mud huts) using clay. The word ‘Lippan’ translates to clay and ‘kaam’ to work.

Geometric patterns and traditional Kutch motifs are sculpted freehand. Each pattern in embellished with small mirrors of various sizes and shapes. In addition to geometric patterns and Kutch motifs, it is common to see birds, trees, animals, and human figures in Lippan kaam.

The mud mixture is prepared by kneading clay or camel dung with hay (as it contains fibers serving as a binding agent) with water. Glue or starch is used to stick small mirrors or dried seeds of different sizes and shapes.
Though the authenticity of Lippan kaam lies in a completed piece that is all white or in shades of neutrals; bright colors like red and green are sometimes painted on the dried clay work.

Mostly done by women, this is usually done in groups while chatting or singing bringing a sense of togetherness. These scintillating murals bring life, gaiety, and beauty to their generally harsh life. The women are so experienced in this art form that they usually don’t draw or trace a pattern before beginning work. It is inherent nature within us to want to decorate our homes and surround ourselves with beauty, beauty as each one of us sees it.
