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.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
