The Patta painting is an important aspect of Orissan painting which originated from the temple of Jagannath at Puri in the 12th century. I would like to know more about this kind of painting and its present adaptations...

Patta painting or palm leaf painting has grown and flourished with the spread of Jagannath temple under the patronage of Gangga kings, Suryavamsi Gajapatis and the kings of Bhoi dynasty. The Pata painting was basically designed to popularise the cult of Jagannath through their sale to millions of pilgrims visiting Puri. The word Pata was significant relation with the material on which the painting is done and which is known as Patti or Patta. The Patta painting is also done on different media and on different formats. The most popular items are Ganjapa, Masks, Toys of Jagannath, Balabhdra, Subhadra and miniature of Jagannath temple. Although Ganjapa is a secular item, the element of religiosity has been added with the introduction of Dasavatara Ganjapa and the Ramayan Ganjapa. Patta paintings are also called Patta Chitra because they are executed on hand woven silk. They are painted with bright colours and possess a charm peculiarly their own. Their pictorial conceptions, their unique painting technique and line formations together with colour schemes make them a remarkably original art form that is distinct from any other school of painting either in or outside India.

Besides mural paintings, there are miniature paintings, which are called patta chitras. Pattas paintings are now used as wall hangings. Religious themes are the basic pattern of the Patta paintings. The stories of Rama and Krishna are usually depicted on the pattas. Rasa Lila , Vastra Haran , Kaliya Dalan are some of the recurring themes of Patta art. Patta chitras of Lord Jagannath, Balabhadra and Subhadra, the Navagrahas and the deities are also famous. In some parts of Orissa, during marriage ceremonies, Patta chitras of Durga and Mahadeva are also used. The Patachitras are also done on cloth. In the absence of paper, cloth gives an extended smooth surface and is easily transported. Patta paintings are so called because they are executed on silken hand woven both. They are painted with bright colours and possess a charm peculiarly their own.Their pictorial conceptions, their unique painting technique and line formations together with colour schemes make them a remarkable both as an original art form and as an expression of art.

Patta paintings are given such name because they are executed on hand woven silk. They are painted with bright colours and possess a charm peculiarly their own. Their pictorial conceptions, their unique painting technique and line formations together with colour schemes make them a remarkably original art form that is distinct from any other school of painting either in or outside India. The images are traced by using black or white ink to fill grooves etched on rows of equal-sized panels of palm leaf that are sewn together. These panels can also be easily folded like a fan and packed in a compact pile for better conservation.

hello everybody.. i want to share here the technique of making of the patta Chitra..I happened to witness this. The preparation of pattas on canvas is awe inspiring. On the first hand a piece of cloth is washed neatly and is spread out on the floor. The tamarind seed in powdered form with water is poured on it to make a especial kind of gum. This gum is applied over this piece of cloth. Prior drying up tthis gum, another piece of the cloth of same size is placed on it and a fresh coating of gum is pasted on it. Then the whole thing is allowed to dry. Now this part is further interesting. After the patta is dried a paste of soft white stone powder which more or less resembles a chalk powder is applied on bothsides. After both side dry completely the huge piece of cloth is cut into required sizes.
