Tree of Life, in Talapatra Palm Leaf Art by Sanju Swain

Tree of Life, etched and handpainted in pattachitra Palm Leaf art by Sanju Swain

Tree of life is a universal symbol of life and interconnectedness of life on earth. The tree is considered to be a sacred entity. The painting is divided into several sections with each section showing a different tree( a different form of life). In the outermost part we see 21 sections, and 23 sections on the inside showing different stages of the tree. Lastly in the centre, in focus we see the main tree, shown to be the provider of life to all.

Hailing from the village of Raghurajpur, the village of pattachitra artists in India, Sanju Swain's family has been painting for 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.
