Product Description

Mesmerizing Summer Festival Celebration!

Story of the Painting

This beautiful, colorful and fascinating Saura Art showcases the vibrant Summer festival celebration in parts of Odisha to promote their culture. The main symbolic theme of this painting is a fish and a conch and the celebratory dance, which signifies joy, cheerfulness and prosperity.

This painting is a detailed illustration of the village life of Saura tribals, and depicts the various facets of their life events. Events that are shown in this painting include wedding procession as we call it baraat and bride's farewell procession or doli, along with a lot of gifts and food back home. It also showcases the normal village homes and people engaged in their daily activities like, women fetching water, men bringing food home, animals taken outdoor for grazing and few other men offering animal sacrifices to their deities. All these activities keep the village active and prosperous. Animals like horses, elephants, goats, monkeys, etc. are also shown in the painting around houses and trees, that are very much the integral part of the village life.

 Fishes, as in every culture denotes fertility and procreation, prosperity and good luck. And a conch symbolises auspiciousness, peace, harmony and brings prosperity and wealth in the house. Both the fish and conch are painted in the clean sea water, embedded with beautiful village folks, and symbolise celebration and joy.

There is a lovely traditional Odisha dance shown in the centre of the painting, as part of summer festival to celebrate their culture and tradition.

    The Tribal Art of Odisha

    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 among the ancient tribes of India. As the people of this tribe 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 cultural occasions such as child-birth, harvest, marriage and the construction of a new house.

    Saura art form is drawn from a rich set of motifs taken from their assocciation with nature, society and everyday life that include the Sun (God), the Moon (God), the Wind (God), the village deity, people, horses, elephants and tree of life. 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. Though both Saura and Warli art forms draw no features on faces and tell stories with their gestures.

    In recent times, this unique, detail-oriented yet so simple 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.
