In this painting, we see Lord Ganesha,in the centre and surrounding him are different scenes from his life. The painting particularly focuses on the story about the reincarnation of Lord Ganesha and how he came to being an elephant headed god. The artist has made an extremely engaging composition given special details to each and every section of the painting.
Hailing from the village of Raghurajpur, the village of pattachitra artists in India, Purusottam Swain's family has been painting for more than 6 generations.
The name Pattachitra has evolved from the Sanskrit words patta, meaning canvas, and chitra, meaning picture. Originally from Odisha, Pattachitra is thus a painting done on canvas, and is manifested by rich colourful application, creative motifs and designs, and portrayal of simple themes, mostly mythological in depiction. More than anything, the themes are clearly the essence of the art form, conceptualising the meaning of the paintings.
