    Description

    This patachitra painting from Orissa stands out to be a unique creation in itself as the fantastic pictorial conceptions, the idiosyncratic conventions, the extraordinary system of line formations and vibrant use of colours have given this painting based on a theme of the epic Ramayan a bright efflorescence. The uniqueness of this school of painting was derived from some primitive forms of aboriginal art from Orissa or its neighbouring states. While the demons have been painted blue and black the banar sena (monkey soldiers) have been treated with yellow colours.A beautiful tradition of painting from Orissa, the process of preparing the canvas (Pata) is onerous and involves the preparation of a tamarind seed paste, mixed with water in an earthen pot and subjected to further treatment. When the canvas is dry, it is polished, a process that takes several hours. Once it is dry, the paintings ('chitrakarita') begin. A border is drawn around the pata. Then the outlines of the figures are drawn in white pigment. Next the background between the border and the figure or figures is painted in a solid colour, that are either natural or organic. Later, fine decorations are added to the picture. The painting is finished with a protective coating.
