This Pattachitra Painting is hand painted in the traditional style depicting the Purna Kumbha. Purna-Kumbha is preeminently a Vedic motif, known from the time of Rigveda. It is also called Soma-Kalasha, Chandra-Kalasha, Indra-Kumbha, Purnaghata, Purna-Virakamsya, Bhadra ghata, or Mangala ghata. It is referred to as an "overflowing full vase" (purno-asya Kalasha) in the Vedas. 

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.
