Pattachitra is the traditional, cloth-based scroll painting, based in the eastern Indian state of Odisha. In the Sanskrit language, "Patta" means "cloth" and "Chitra" means "picture". This traditional art of Oriya painting thrives in the skilled hands of Chitrakaras (traditional painters) in Puri, Raghurajpur, Paralakhemundi, Sonepur and Chikiti.
The theme of Oriya painting centers round the Vaishnava cult. Since beginning of Pattachitra culture, Lord Jagannat was the major source of inspiration. The subject matter of Patta Chitra is mostly mythological, religious stories and folk lore.
The painters use vegetable and mineral colours. Preparing these colours needs a lot patience. But this process gives brilliance and permanence to the hue. 'Hingula', a mineral colour, is used for red. 'Haritala', for yellow, 'Ramaraja' a sort of indigo for blue is used. Pure lamp-black or black prepared from the burning of coconut shells are used. The brushes that are used by these 'Chitrakaras' are also indigenous and are made of hair of domestic animals. A bunch of hair tied to the end of a bamboo stick make the brush. It is a testimony of ability of painters that they create such master pieces with the help of these crude brushes.
