Saura Art is one of the oldest tribal art form of India. The Sauras are one of India’s oldest tribes, inhabiting the southern part of Odisha. They are deeply connected with nature and used the art form to depict their everyday life in the form of simple figures on the walls of their house. Though simplistic in appearance, it is rich in symbolism and meaning and conveys their true culture, customs and history. Saura art appears similar to Warli because of similar geometrical shapes and earthen colors but the two artforms are different from the composition of the forms to the pattern in which they are placed.
This piece of Saura art has been done on paper glazed with deep brown color to bring out the earthen effect and the figures have been done in white acrylic. It depicts the daily life of the tribal people with flora and fauna gracing the scene. Also to be noted is the fact that Sun and Moon are a part of the same painting.
This artwork is like a cool breeze that brings simplicity in the maze of life.
