Product Description

The famous Rath Yatra celebration in this Saura painting.

The theme of this interesting Saura painting is the annual Rath yatra or the Chariot Festival associated with Lord Jagannath, which helds at Puri in Odisha. This painting has 4 frames with each frame showcasing a particular activity associated with the overall theme of the painting.

The top panel is drawn from the everyday life of the Saura tribals, engaged in daily activities like a women carrying some household load, and a mahout with an elephant. Similarly, the bottom-most panel depicts horses and goats that are integral part of the village life.

The two frames in between shows the main Rath Yatra, that bring the villagers together in celebration. Few people are seen pulling the chariot, few others are playing drums and women are seen singing and dancing in joy.

Saura paintings are always made within a decorated border and depict either their everyday life events or one of their significant religious or traditional occasion. 

    • This is a beautiful wall art to add to your living area and be soaked up in its mesmerizing natural beauty.
    • It is a detailed handmade artwork by authentic artist of Odisha.
    • The Indian states of Odisha and Maharashtra have their own style of tribal painting & differ in their use of motifs and each style has been accorded Geographical Indicator Tag by the Govt. of India.

    * The finer the artwork is, the more value it adds to the painting.

    Saura Tribal Art

    GI Tagged - Yes

    Saura paintings were originally painted as 'wall murals' also called as ikons inspired by the deep-rooted religious beliefs of the Saura tribe, which is one of the ancient tribes of India. As the tribals considered every natural phenomenon as an act of some God, deity or ancestral spirit, these ikons were drawn to appease Saura ancestors and deities and they worshipped them on special religious and ceremonial occasions such as child-birth, marriage, harvest or the construction of a new house.

    This art form is drawn from a rich set of motifs taken from their association with nature, society and everyday life that include the Sun (God), the Moon (God), the Wind (God), the village deity, people, horses, elephants, tree of life, etc. Unlike its twin art form Warli, the Saura paintings are drawn in rectangular frames from the border inwards, and use more fluid stick figures with little movement.

    Interestingly, both Saura and Warli art forms draw absolutely no features on faces and tell stories only with their gestures.

    In recent times, this unique and minimal art form with symbolic representation
    of the tribal lifestyle is getting extensive popularity among both the domestic and international market. To keep up with the trend of the contemporary times, the paintings are now drawn on handmade paper or silk cloth and new motifs are also getting incorporated gradually.
