Tribal Paintings of Orissa

Tribal paintings in Orissa draw inspiration from the activities of daily life. These paintings contain rows of images depicting humans engaged in daily chores or some ceremonies and rituals.

These paintings, done using black color, mainly adorn the household articles. Artists have adopted this style of painting on fabric woven from raw silk for commercial purpose.
