Scroll painting or PattaChitra is a notable artform, coming from the tribal villages of West Bengal. These scrolls were visual accompaniments to stories told through songs and ballads. The Ramayana, tribal folklore and many other mythological stories have come alive with these beautifully illustrated scrolls. These paintings are traditionally made with natural mineral and vegetable colors. Delightful and earthy, these paintings reflect the ancient tradition of storytelling in India.
