Fine and Elegant Handpainted Saura Art saree painted by the Master artists from orissa on a fine Silk cotton saree.The Saree has an elaborate work of Saura art on the palla and smaller fine and very intricate motifs on the body.

Saura paintings are from the saura tribes who live in Orissa. Saura tribe (a.k.a Sabara and Sora) is one of the oldest known communities in India. These paintings are found on the mud walls of their houses. However, these days they are drawn on fine silk fabrics as well.

The painting usually depict the daily activities in the life of the Sauras. The paintings show several rows of human forms engaged in daily or ceremonial activities. In an alternating set of rows, differing moods/activities of people are portrayed.

The Sauras’ depiction of the human form is similar to that of the Warlis and hence at times, the Saura paintings are mistaken as Warli paintings. However, the two styles of painting differ distinctly in their use of colours, backgrounds and other details.
