The art of Pattachitra paintings emerged from Puri in Odisha. Legend has it that local artists in the Puri region began painting images of the temple deities on a piece of cloth. This practice started so as to give the temple deities a break after the annual ritual bath.
This form of painting on cloth came to be known as Pattachitra, Patta meaning Cloth and Chitra meaning Painting.
This Pattachitra Painting of Lord Jagganath is hand painted in the traditional style. In Gaudiya Vaishnav tradition, Balabhadra is the elder brother Balaram, Jagannath is the younger brother Krishna, and Subhadra is the youngest sister. Balabhadra considered the elder brother of Jagannath, is sometimes identified with and worshipped as Shiva.
