Pattachitra Painting (West Bengal)

The patua scroll painting from eastern India, sometimes also called patachitra scroll painting, is a delightful traditional art which takes on a performative nature. Combining art and narrative through song, patachitra from West Bengal has its unique features, though similar traditions can be found in a few other places concentrated around the state.

Themes that define the painting vary from oral traditions of folk tales, mythological texts and scenes.
