Practiced by the Saura tribe of Orissa, known as one of the worldÍs most ancient tribes, these paintings adorn the walls of their homes. They are created in order to ensure a good harvest, avert diseases and honor the valiant and the dead. What began as a prolonged procedure of invocation of the spirits to representing icons has gradually changed into modernized expression amalgamating early memories of the cycle of plowing, sowing, and harvesting. Executed on cloth, the simple yet vivid depiction of the art form speaks the primeval yet universal language of the connection between man and nature.
