ODISHA: PALM LEAF PAINTING

This is one of the most ancient crafts of the world called Talapatrachitras, which is etching and paintings on the palm leaf.The art originated when written communication began. Messages and manuscripts were written on the palm leaf to be disseminated. This ethnic art is still practiced primarily in Puri and Cuttack.
The ethnic art form essentially consists of inscribing letters and artistic designs on palm-leaf, held together with two wooden plank covers strung through a hole in the centre. To prepare the palm leaf, the unripe leaves of the palm tree are first cut and semi-dried. They are then buried in swamps for 4-5 days for seasoning and then dried in the shade. These are then stitched or stringed together.
Etching is then done within lines using an iron pen on leaf strips. Colours are only used as fillers and in very subdued tones. The artists of palm leaf etchings capture mythological themes, Gods and Goddesses figures complete with details of hair style and dress, animals, flowers and trees etc. Radha and Krishna, Durga, Ganesha and Saraswati are the most commonly used themes. Stories and incidents of Mahabharat, Ramayana and other epics are also etched.
