Each pattichitra painting has an intriguing tale of rustic Oriental life to tell: in rural, riverine Eastern India, women spend hours preparing the cloth-based canvas (patti) and the rich pigments, while the men spend their days in painting (chitra). This pattachitra depicts numerous instances from the life of the beloved Lord Krishna as He traverses the path of earthly life (lila).
