Folk art has always been influenced by Hindu mythology. The epics play a major role in shaping their religious and social role. Ramayana, with Rama, as the hero is popular as a guide to right living.

Ram is symbolic of a perfect husband and Sita of a perfect wife; Hanuman is an exemplary devotee in the service of his Lord, and the three of them together are role models for a pious life. Rama was a descendent of the Sun Clam, the Suryavanshi; hence the symbol of the sun on the throne. The modeling of the bodies and the facial features are typical of Orissa style-full bodies, face in profile and of course the ornaments have local traditional designs. A quiver of arrows can be seen behind Rama's shoulder as he holds one arrow from it. If Rama is a form of Vishnu, then as Sita, Lakshmi is his consort and thus, holds a lotus in one hand. A halo surrounds Rama's head, giving him an exclusive divine status. Holding Rama's foot with reverence is Hanuman, who has become the apotheosis of loyalty and selfless service. The mace, his attribute, lies next to him, forgotten as he sees nothing beyond Lord Rama.
