The beautiful painting of Lord Maruti or Hanuman is given a spectacular touch with some minute detail. His headgear, tail and drapery all are nicely painted. Hanuman is a Hindu god, who was an ardent devotee of Rama. Lord hanuman is the key figure in the epic Ramayana. A vanara (monkey-like humanoid), Hanuman participated in Rama's war against the demon king Ravana. Several texts also present him as an incarnation of Lord Shiva. He is the son of Vayu, who played a role in his birth. The story behind the birth of Hanuman is given in Valmiki Ramayan (Kishkindhakand, sarga 66) as follows: Anjani gave birth to Hanuman. After birth, thinking that the rising sun was a golden fruit He leapt into the sky for it. That day being a solar eclipse (parvatithi) Rahu (the dragon’s head) had come to engulf the sun. Thinking that Hanuman was another Rahu Lord Indra attacked Him with His thunderbolt. It struck Hanuman’s chin (hanuvati) which got cut and developed a cleft. Thus he acquired the name Hanuman.

Hanuman’s devotion to the Lord Rama, Sita’s love for Rama, and the popularity that the King had in his state all has been given a vivid picturisatsation by the artists. Vibrant colours, strong lines, naturtal dyes are the basic features of the Patachitra paintings of Orissa that normally paint the mythological figures of Hinduism. Mainly made on silk or on old cotton glued with paper, the artists use a mixture of chalk and tamarind seed paste to give the surface a leather like texture. The figures have been arduously painted giving each and every one equal treatment.
