This Pattachitra painting depicts a celebration in a village for planting of new crops. It is hand made by an artist in Odisha, India.
As strange as it seems, Pattachitra paintings started off around the 12th century as souvenirs for pilgrims who visited the Jagannath and Puri Temples in Odisha. An ancient form of using merchandise to popularize a venue, something that still happens today.
