Episodes from the Mahabharata are frequently depicted in all forms of art and Orissa pata-chitra is no exception. The sermon that Lord Krishna delivered to Arjuna in the battlefield of Kurukshetra is one such episode.

The unique element of this painting is that the protagonists of the narrative are placed in the extreme left corner. Lord Krishna, with his hand raised in a blessing gesture, stands in a frontal pose while Arjuna can be seen seated in profile, kneeling, hands held in anjali mudra. The central space of the painting is occupied by the grandiose of their chariot driven by four white steeds. The horses are richly caparisoned in silk saddles and ornaments. The main chariot has an elaborate canopy with the arches flanked by elephant heads with raised trunks, parrots and peacocks. Prominently placed atop the chariot is the image of Hanuman, the deity they look up to for protection.

As Krishna sermonises Arjuna, there is stillness around. All there is to movement is the shell-shaped clouds that fill up the entire background. The foreground consists of the story ground.

The painting displays an abashed use of colour. Too many colours have disturbed the aesthetic element but is saved by the firm and strong line.
