Traditional Painting

With an evolving style the traditional painting of Odisha- Pattachitra is a dynamic craft that draws its motifs from mythology and folk lore. The colours used are extracted from natural substances and can be seen on many modern-day objects as well such as decorative boxes, wooden toys and paper-mâché. The gallery also houses a collection of Palm leaf etchings locally referred to as Talapattachitra.
