ABOUT THE ART

Palm leaf paintings of Odisha are one of the most ancient art forms. They are of two types-One with simple engravings or illustrations in pure line on palm leaf and other engraving with colour filling. The design and images are etched on the surface of Palm leaf using a sharp pen or stylus like object. Ink or concoction of charcoal of burnt coconut shell, tumeric and oil is then poured along the lines, the lines are now defined. Vegetable dyes are also added to give these painting some colour., but these paintings are mostly dichromatic ( black and white).
