Lord Jagannath - Worshipped as 'The Lord of The Universe' in India, and across the globe!
Lord Jagannath is an abstract representation of Shri Krishna, the eight avatar of Lord Vishnu. And Shri Jagannath-dham Puri is considered as the eternal abode of Lord Krishna with His brother Balabhadra and His sister Subhadra. This is the only temple where Lord Krishna is worshipped with His siblings.
This painting is an auspicious Pattachitra made by an authentic artist from Bhubaneswar, Odisha. It depicts the beautiful and unique idols of Lord Jagannath in black colored face, Lord Balabhadra in white and Devi Subhadra in yellow colored face. The icons of the sanctum are very unusual as they are incomplete wooden carvings, which is very distinct from how other Hindu deities are traditionally made perfect. And the same idols are made as a beautiful illustration in this piece of art.
+ Lord Jagannath is dressed in yellow, with large, enticing round eyes and no eyelids. He is having His iconic weapon i.e. Sudarshan chakra in His one hand and there is another auspicious icon associated with Lord Vishnu i.e. a conch in His other hand.
+ The idols of Lord Balabhadra and Devi Subhadra are clothed in colorful dresses and have oval eyes, which is another distinct feature from Lord Jagannath. Lord Balabhadra has been associated with farming and thus His weapons include a plough and a club. The idol of Devi Subhadra lacks both the limbs; but still looks so beautiful in deep orange dress.
+ Interestingly, the Sudarshana Chakra in the form of a wooden pillar, unlike its usual circular chakra form, can be seen beside Lord Jagannath. There is also a beautiful lotus petaled platform which seats the Lord with His siblings, within lovely green floral border.
Lord Jagannath is the most compassionate and generous God for His devotees and thus the most beloved! Every year, there is a Rath Yatra procession in the city of Puri attended by lakhs of devotees, wherein Lord Jagannath is brought outside the temple with His siblings on chariot, which is then pulled by His devotees all along the Yatra. Similar festivities are celebrated by His countless devotees around the world.
Thispainting or chitrahas been painted on a silk cloth, which lends durability and gives longevity to the painting.
It is a beautiful handmade art work by an authentic artist of Odisha.

Pattachitra, one of the oldest folk art traditions of India, is still practised in Odisha and West Bengal.
Pattachitra is a Sanskrit word derived from patta, meaning canvas or cloth or palm leaf; and chitra, meaning picture. This style of hand-painting was originated in Odisha in 12th century BC, i.e. more than 3000 years ago, and it started when Odiya painters or patuas started drawing paintings as temple offerings.
Pattachitra's theme mostly revolves around Hindu deities and various mythological stories associated with them. These are drawn using rich, colorful & creative motifs in well-defined poses.
In earlier times, artists themselves used to prepare the canvas for their artwork and make colors from shells, dyes, turmeric root, organic lac, minerals, etc. Nowadays, they use high quality artist grade professional colors available in the market.
Historically, this art style was done by only men, but now women and even young girls are also taking up this art form and creating beautiful art pieces.
Laxmi Meher is one such woman artist from BolangirTown in Odisha. She has won State Award from Chief Minister of Odisha in 1990 for her proficiency and dedication towards the art form. And later she also won Master Craftsman National Award from the President of India in 2005.
Interestingly, pattachitra is as old as new! And since last few decades, it has gained interest, appreciation and buyers from across the globe. Read more
