Palm leaf work , Tal Pattachitra of Orissa

Pattachitra is a traditional painting of Odisha, India which is done on either a canvas, a cloth usually or even on leaves, and manifested by rich colourful application, creative motifs, and designs.


Palm leaf, Naturals

To prepare the palm leaf, the unripe leaves of the palm tree are first cut and semidried, then buried in swamps for 4-5 days for seasoning and then dried in shade, ready for use.



The ethnic art form essentially consists of inscribing letters and artistic designs on palm-leaf, mostly cut into standard sizes and held together with two wooden plank covers stringed through a hole.


Pattachitra Painting

Pattachitra is a traditional painting of Odisha . The painting on palm leaves is a unique process, as ink or pens are not directly used to apply colour. Instead, an iron stylus has to be used with extreme care, to etch the drawing on to the brittle surface, making sure that it doesn’t go wrong or the leaf doesn’t break. Once the drawing is inscribed,lamp black is rubbed all over the leaf and then it is cleaned, giving fine black colour to the carved lines, while rest of the surface stays clean.
