This Pattachitra represents the Dashavtars of Bhagwan Vishnu.

Each painting is a unique recreation of different religious sequences and events. The paintings recite different stories about various religious anecdotes. Decorated with extensive details, this is a painting of Krishna Leela.
In the 1940s, an American lady Ms. Helena Zealy tried to help promote art overseas. She held exhibitions in America and gave the artists a global market to showcase their art.
