More about art & artisans

Sohrai Hand Painting is a form of surface ornamentation technique practiced by the women artisans of Oraon, Kurmi, Santhal, Munda, Agaria and Ghatwal tribes of Jharkhand.

Traditionally, during the harvest season women used to paint the mud walls of their houses to welcome the harvest and celebrate the cattle. Jungle scenes/ forest life and aquatic life are some of the most hand painted scenes of oraon sohrai. Natural pigments are mixed with mud – Kali maati, Dudhi/ Charak maati, Lal maati and Pila maati to form Black, White, Red and Yellow respectively. Every color has a significance and a legend. Primitively, the art form was done on caves then it shifted to houses with mud walls. Today the cement walls, canvases also textiles & clothing etc. are adorned with sohrai painting.
