My Village, in Saura Art by Purusottam Swain

The composition shows a scene from daily rural life. The painting gives a festive vibe. In the centre, we can see a huge circle and people inside it shown in a circular pattern, almost as if celebrating something.

On the left, we see a hut, decorated and people inside it dancing in joy surrounded by animals, while on the right we see a door with a similar setting.

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.
