Pattachitra Art of Assam

%月 %日, %年

Pattachitra is similar to ‘storyboards’ or stories told along with pictures.

The tales depicted are usually derived from epics such as Bhagawat and Ramayana.

In ancient India, this art was created on palm leaves. Such paintings were found in Assam, Orissa, Kerala and Rajasthan in varied forms.

A few images of the pattachitra paintings in the magnificent collection of the Guwahati Museum:
