It is always difficult to pin the exact beginning of any traditional art. Similarly for the pata chitras which have existed in various parts of Orissa since time immemorial.

The pata chitras mainly have the designs of Sri Jagannath, Balabhadra and Subhadra, the three deities. Every year, after the Snanotsav (bathing ceremony), the deities reside in a secluded chamber called Ansara Ghar till the Rath Yatra, which is depicted here in full splendor. The chariots, as much as the idols are entirely crafted in wood. The three cars housing the deities are fixed with sturdy ropes, which are helpful to devotees pulling the monumental rathas. The annual rath yatra is accompanied by celebrations and rituals. The drum and cymbal players in the foreground beat them to the tune of devotional singing. The brahmins and pujaris of the temple sit atop the chariots distributing 'prasadam' and blessing the general public.

The entire composition is teeming with people, giving the artist choice of various colours, costumes, facial features and postures. The sky, instead of providing spatial relief to the composition, adds to the clutter; various birds and clouds vie with the fluttering flags at the top of the chariots for prominence in the expanse above.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
