Sauras are one of the oldest tribes of India. Saura tribal paintings are mainly ‘wall murals’ in their houses based on religious and ceremonial themes. These paintings convey great aesthetic sense reflecting their life style…. the various symbols convey a special meaning and purpose.
Saura Art is mainly found in Rayagada, Gajapati and Koraput districts of Orissa. The triangular forms of the body with stick like extremities are almost like ‘Warli’…, another tribal art belongs to Thane (near Pune- Maharashtra), but Saura art is colorful. The characters are white in warli and the culture depicted in Warli also is different. In both Saura and Warli tribal arts, no features are drawn on the human face but the characters can tell us stories with their ‘gestures’ even without the facial expressions.
