Patachitra or Pattachitra is a general term for traditional, cloth-based scroll painting, based in the eastern Indian states of Odisha, West Bengal and parts of Bangladesh. The pattachitra art form is known for its intricate details as well as mythological narratives and folktales inscribed in it.
Historically, Pattachitra came into existence in order to depict Lord Jagannath’s tales. Krishna’s leelas have been an important motif for the paintings as well. Thus, the main themes of Pattachitra revolve around religious narratives, mythological stories and folktales.
Pattachitra, apart from painting on the cloth, is the most amazing engraving over a palm leaf. This very complicated art form is done on dried palm leaves and stitched together to look for a canvas. These amazingly beautiful intricacies are delicately done as one small move can destroy their entire creativity.
