Santhal Painting 002

Discription:

Santhal Paintings have simple themes like wedding, harvest, music and daily rituals but the colors and artistic imagination bring alive the most mundane. These tribal paintings are drawn by a special community called Jadu Patua or magic painters in the Santhal Paragana district of Bengal/Bihar borders. Originated during pre Aryan period, Santhal tribe is ancient but their paintings are interestingly contemporary in Human figures design. The figures are dramatic yet realistic and symmetrical.
