Buy Pattachitra Paintings
Pattachitra, Tado Chitra and Tasar Chitra are art forms from Odisha, with Raghurajpur being the hub, with a history of over a thousand years. These paintings have a unique style which, with its natural colours on either cotton cloth (Patta), silk cloth (Tasar) or Palm leaf (Tado) brings about some glorious paintings from the life and times of Lord Krishna, Mahabharata and Lord Jagannath. The GI status given to these paintings indicates the uniqueness of Pattachitras. With a mix of classical and folk traditions Pattachitra, Tasar Chitras and Tado Chitras can easily blend into both traditional and contemporary homes.
And, of course, as in the Puri Jagannath temple, Lord Jagannath's Pattachitras can be adorned in the puja room instead of the idols!
