Scene of Lord Jagannath Temple
The fine painting of the temple of Lord Jagannath is a fine manifest of the rich traditions Various parts of the temple have been painted with some fabulous line formations and vibrant colours. The origin and development of Patachitra paintings are inextricably linked with the Jagannath Cult. Each year, the painted wooden images of Jagannath, Balabhadra, and Shubhadra in the Jagannath temple of Puri are ritually given the holy bath. This cleansing leads to the discoloration of the images. Hence, they are removed from the 'garbha griha' (the Seat in the Temple) for repainting. During this period, the temple images are substituted for three paintings, depicting the holy trio, cloth, Chitra = painting). Originating as a ritual, the Patachitra has evolved as a distinct school of painting and is regarded today as one of the most cherished collectors' items.
