Saura Painting [Orissa]


This folk art painting is known as ‘Saura painting’. The ‘Saura’ tribe of Orissa makes these paintings. The theme of this folk painting has been drawn from their everyday life, showing several rows of human forms engaged in daily or ceremonial activities. In alternating set of rows, differing moods of dancing and warring people are portrayed. Seated on horses or elephants, men go on wars to protect the natural rhythm of life back home. At the base of the painting, we see men around a tree, signifying the close connection between man and nature.
