The Manuscript Paintings of Assam have a long history, dating back to the 16th century. These Manuscripts are polychrome paintings done on materials such as 'Sanchipat,' which is the bark of the Agar Tree, or a wooden plate made of handmade paper pulp. Along with the paintings, the manuscripts include written descriptions of various narratives. The paintings depicted illustrations from various religious sources such as the Bhagvata, Puranas, Ramayana, and Mahabharata. A lot of these manuscripts have their own unique characteristics, and aside from depicting religious scriptures, they have also become the home of many narratives about various kingdoms and their activities- kings, queens, soldiers on battlefields, and people from everyday life- thus becoming a reliable source of information.
