The beautiful Patachitra painting is a revelation of the finery of this Orissa style of painting. The painting depicts two great figures in Hinduism fighting against each other. Lord Ganesha is called Ekadanta because of his one broken tusk. It is said that this tusk was knocked out by Parasurama. There is an anecdote that one day Parasurama arrived to see Siva, and Ganesh would not let him in. When Parasurama tried to get by Ganesh they started fighting and Parasurama broke his tusk. Parvati was about to curse Parasurama, but Brahma stopped her and promised that even though he had only one tusk, that Ganesh would still be worshipped by all men and even the demigods would worship him. The painting is a testimony of the glorious history of Pata style of painting.
