Ref #: JP004
This painting is made on a vertical scroll on handmade paper. The unique aspect of the painting lies in the bright, yet simple colours which come from organic dyes. The painting here depicts the Santhal women as they celebrate the wedding of their close friend in the community with their typical fun filled tones of dance and music. Historically these Jadupatua painters were called entertainers as well, because of their style of painting and it holds good even today due to their vibrancy of this art form.
