Palm Leaf Engraving/Etching of Odisha

Palm Leaf Engraving/Etching of Odisha


Palm-leaf engraving and etching of Raghurajpur, Odisha, is an age-old hereditary craft that is practised by the chitrakar artist families. Stories from the great epics are etched on the taad or palm leaf. Raghurajpur, located close to the Jagannath temple in Puri is home to artists, painters, sculptors, wood-carvers, and toy-makers. It is believed that this craft originated during the building of the temple and continues even today.
