THE STORY
There's a certain joy in decorating your home with something handmade and with eons of tradition behind it! Just like this exquisite collection of hand-painted Pattachitra artworks. A folk art from Odisha, Pattachitra gets its name from 'patta', which denotes a dried palm leaf in the local language. This collection was made by UNESCO-award winner Akshaya Kumar Bariki, and depicts popular themes like the Ganesha and Krishna stories on canvas, tussar silk and tree of life etched on palm leaves. A dramatic harmony of vivid brushstrokes and intricate mythological motifs, these are perfect to add pops of color, culture and whimsy to your spaces. Snippet 1: Pattachitra was earlier only done on cloth canvas or palm leaves using colors made by stones, conch, and lamp soot. The motifs are typically drawn from mythology. Traditionally, the paintings were used as an offering to the Lord Jagganath. Snippet 2: For such palm leaf Pattachitra paintings, the leaves are first cut into the required sizes and treated with turmeric solution, as the antibacterial properties of turmeric ensure longevity of the painting. Once dried for a few days, the leaves are ready for painting. Snippet 3: Painting on palm leaves is a unique process, as ink or pen is not directly used to apply color. Instead, an iron stylus is used to etch the drawing while ensuring the leaf doesn’t break. Once the drawing is inscribed, lamp black is rubbed all over the leaf and then it is cleaned, giving fine black color to the carved lines.
