Each quarter plate celebrates a tree that is intimately connected to Gond Culture:

Saja Tree: Represents the ultimate creator, Bada Dev. The plate depicts the origin story, according to which a crow was created and tasked with finding clay. Along the way, the bird found Kekda mal, the crab and together they dug up the earthworm which spewed out the soil. Over water, the Makda dev (spider king) spun a web, the soil from the earthworm was scattered over it and thus land was created. Badadev then released all living creatures on the land.

Tamarind tree: Sacred, worshipping platforms for Gond deities are often built under Tamarind trees. The pod-like fruit depicted on the plate, is used to make chutney. Usually, the same also serves as a means of livelihood for the people. Thus, the tamarind tree is symbolic of both the spiritual and the realities connected to the Gond people.

Peepal tree: Represents the house of Trimurti - Lord Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh. While one half of the plate holds intricate patterns of peepal leaves, the other side highlights the lotus, symbolic of Lord Vishnu, & purity, rebirth and strength.  

Pakri tree: The various flowers illustrated on the plate represent the deity Thakur Dev in Gond culture, who is associated with the Pakri tree. It is also believed that Pakri leaves are cooked to make saag, a dish which protects people from illnesses.
