About the Artwork +

Gitanjali Das's Pattachitra depicts Gautam Buddha, also known as the Enlightened One. Buddha represents a soul that has awakened to encompass all objects of knowledge. In the painting, Buddha is shown sitting with his hands positioned in Dharmachakra Mudra, which symbolizes the gesture of Teaching the Wheel of Dharma. This moment is significant as Buddha performed the Dharmachakra mudra in his first sermon in Sarnath after he attained enlightenment. The painting also depicts scenes from the birth story of Gautam Buddha around the central depiction of Buddha.

Pattachitra


Pattachitra is a traditional art form practiced in the eastern states of Odisha, West Bengal, and parts of Bangladesh. Typically it is a scroll painting where stories are painted in panels on a long scroll made of cloth. This centuries-old tradition is the ode to lord Jagganath in Odisha but mainly illustrates the stories from Hindu mythologies like Ramayana, Mahabharatha, Geet Govind, and Bhagwad Geeta amongst others. One of the distinguishing features of Pattachitra is the meticulous and fine line work. The lines are precise and intricate, contributing to the detailed and elaborate nature of the paintings. The origins of Pattachitra can be traced back to the 5th century B.C.  as evidenced by similarities found in ancient murals at religious centers such as Puri, Konark, and Bhubaneswar in Odisha. Traditionally, this art form holds significant importance in the worship and rituals of Lord Jagannath. During the annual Rath Yatra (Chariot Festival), when the deities Jagannath, Balabhadra, and Subhadra are taken out of the temple, Pattachitra paintings are used to adorn the chariots. Method and Technique: As old as the tradition is, the making procedure of Pattachitra also follows the conventional style of preparing the artwork. At first, a mixture of powdered chalk and tamarind seed glue is applied over a canvas cloth and later rubbed to make the surface smooth. After the surface has been prepared, the artist begins the process of drawing the figures, directly with a bamboo brush, either in light red or yellow color, and later fills colors in the drawing. Pattachitra painters typically use natural colors like Ramaraja (indigo), Hingula (a mineral used for red), Haritala (yellow), Kala (lamp black), Sankha (white), and Geru.  At the end, another layer of recycled fabric is added to the back of the painting to increase durability. After all the colors are filled, the Pattachitras are varnished using lacquer to protect them from the weather and give a glossy finish. Apaindra Swain, Manoranjan Chitrakar, and Gitanjali Das are some of the notable artists actively practicing this art form.
