Patachitra the ethnic art of Odisha

This is a religious folk art of odisha called patachitra.Mostly made on cloth.Odisha has rich cultural heritage of Lord Jagannath.The most popular paintings are the figures of Lord Jagannath.
The figures potray Hindu mythological themes.It potrays the folk tales of Odisha.Patachitra is one of the famous ethnic Indian painting.

I tried on a different concept.
I made this patachitra.It is a little bit different from the usual patterns.It has been 20yrs from now.The B.k. college of art research study unit published this new concept.Idea is taken from that publication.

One can preserve the paintigs for a couple of years.After that it starts decaying.But in the virtual world this will live on.
