Patta Paintings have colour and vibrancy .The tradition of wall painting is as old as time in this ancient state .The name Pattachitra has evolved from the Sanskrit words patta, meaning canvas, and chitra, meaning picture. Pattachitra is thus a painting done on canvas, and is manifested by rich colourful application and possess a charm peculiarly their own.Their pictorial conceptions,unique painting technique and line formations together with colour schemes make them a remarkably original art form that is distinct from any other school of painting either in India or abroad.
