The Santhal paintings are done by a special community of painters from Odisha called jadu pathua, or magic painters. These paintings generally depict rituals like marriage, child-birth, harvest and are worshipped during special religious and cultural occasions. People, horses, elephants, the sun and the moon and the trees of life are recurring motifs in these paintings. With the help of this DIY craft kit, you will be able to teach your children (and yourself) about the history of Santhal tribes and their paintings and not only will you be sharing an experience and creating memories, you will also be lending a hand in supporting the local artists who are trying to keep Santhal artform alive.
