Description

This book is on the drawings in the palmleaf manuscripts of Orissa drawn by the scribes-artists who; had no family background of art, no training from any teacher. These drawings are not drawn by pen or pencil but etched by the help of an iron needle called style on dry palmleaves.

They are based on the text of the manuscripts and the artists have shown their individuality in their drawings. They are successful in expressing their feelings through a few lines, which they have drawn spontaneously, but precisely within a limited space of one to two inches (which is the breadth of the palmleaf).
