Orissa's Paata Painting
Artist Rabi Behera
Water Color on Patti
17.5" x 17.5"
Pata Paintings of Orissa are a league of its own. These forms are different from the coloured illustrations on the palm-leaf manuscripts as well as from the rural folk paintings.

Linear and monochromatic, this painting shows a rasamandala. Radha and Krishna can be seen dancing in a grove along with other gopis. This scene forms the nucleus of the mandala with more gopis in the outer circle. Swami Prabhupada maintains that this rasa dance is a completely spiritual performance. There is rhythm and poetic flow in the movements of Radha and Krishna. The dancing pose of other gopis also convey grace. The crowns and other ornaments may not be noticeable as individual object but they add to the overall beauty of the painting.

The circular rasamandala on a square canvas, gives the artist four corners to be used in a manner that heightens the beauty of the entire painting. If that wasn't enough, he gives the theme a narrow border, followed by a broader one - one better than the other.
