Product Description

'Tree of Life' is one of the most esoteric symbols that's been around for ages, and found in nearly every culture.

On one hand, it symbolises how all the creation emerged by God's energy substantiated and diversified into the whole of the universe, and thus connecting every physical bit with the godhead. And at the same time, it serves as the constant reminder to the humans to rise up through the tree to tread the path to enlightenment and purification. 

Story of the Painting

This beautiful tree of life motif is painted in Saura Art Form. It depicts a lush Pine tree with thick branches and small flowers blooming all over. This elegant and detailed piece of artwork with a colorful floral border is done by a very skilled Pattachitra/Saura artist. Saura tribals regard every aspect of nature as being alive and home to a spirit that has to be propitiated. And thus Saura paintings are inspired by their traditional folklore and they worship them even today during special religious and cultural occasions.

However, this tree of life painting stands symbolic of growth, strength, individuality, stability and beauty for all; and gives a sense of hope, peace and calm in this chaotic and noise filled surroundings.

  • In some religious philosophies, tree of life is considered as a cosmic tree that symbolises immortality and rebirth. 
  • In some other cultures, tree of life is symbolic to fertility and life.
  • And irrespective of our belief system, trees are symbolic of growth, strength, individuality, stability and beauty; and give a sense of hope, peace and calm.
  • There are various tree of life in different cultures and regions.
  • In Buddhism, it is the pipal tree which is known as the Tree of Enlightenment as its said that Buddha attained enlightenment under this tree.
  • In Hinduism, Puranas mention a divine tree Kalpavriksha that grants different types of wishes, when it is pleased with chanting and offers.
  • 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 art work by authentic artist of Orissa.
  • The Indian states of Orissa and Maharashtra have their own style of tribal painting Patta & differ in their use of motifs and each style has been accorded Geographical Indicator Tag by the Govt. of India.

* The finer the art work is, the more value it adds to the paintings.

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.
