Pic by @nadodian - Palm Leaf Painting Odisha Village Raghurajpur, in Puri district is famous for Talapatrachitras (Palm Leaf painting).Somewhere in the evolution of writing from stone to paper, came inscriptions on palm leaves.Palm leaf inscriptions survive to the present date. Palm leaves are first cut into the required sizes and treated with a solution of turmeric, as the antibacterial properties of turmeric ensure longevity of the painting. Once dried for a few days, the leaves are ready for painting. An iron stylus has to be used with extreme care, to etch the drawing on to the brittle surface.Once the drawing is inscribed,lamp black is rubbed all over the leaf and then it is cleaned, giving fine black colour to the carved lines, while rest of the surface stays clean.The artists also sometimes make very small cut outs in the painting, to give it a stencil like appearance. #bhubaneswarbuzz #nadodian#India#Odisha#Palm#Leaf#Painting#Art#Puri#Orissa#Handicraft#Village#Color#Artisan#Backpacking#_COI#_SOI#ExploreCulture#SoloBackpacker#InstaTravel#TravelStoke#Journey#Explore#TravelRealIndia#RootsOfIndia#TravelGram#Incredibleindiaofficial #bhubaneswarbuzzFB
