Topic: Patachitra is the miniature folk painting of Orissa. It exhibits the use of strong line and brilliant colors. It is done on a cloth which the artists prepare themselves by coating it with a mixture of chalk and gum made from tamarind seeds to give the surface a leather like texture on which the artists paint with earth and stone colors. The subject matter of these paintings is limited to religious themes.
