Description
Chittara Painting

Folk Art of Karnataka
Deep in the forests of Karnataka, in southern part of India, lives a small tribe, called Deewaru. People of this tribal community have a beautiful art called Chittara, which is a mix of music, painting and lifestyle. This painting, which used to be done only by women, was always accompanied with a song. Traditionally Deewaru women painted the mud walls of their huts on special occasions such as weddings, festivals and auspicious days.

Motifs used in Chittara painting are very geometric and mainly lines. The art forms represent the daily hustle bustle of their village life, various ceremonies, the birds and animals around them, the toys their children play with, the flowers used for pooja etc. the colors used for painting were traditionally made from natural materials and each family used to make its own color. White was made from rice, red from crushed red stone and red mud, black from burnt rice, and yellow from seds of gurige tree that grows in the surrounding jungles. Brushes are made of fine jute from fibres of pundi plant.

The painting on the cover is of Tulsi tree, as depicted by the deewaru people, and inside the kit, are paintings of nested birds, hen and cock, palanquin, tulsi tree and prayer posture.
