KALIGHAT

Kalighat Pat or Kalighat paintings are originally from the Kalighat Kali Temple of Kolkata. Starting in the late nineteenth century, these pat or long scrolls were dedicated to figures of Gods and Goddesses. A performs cum artist would carry these scrolls and travel far off places to narrate the divine stories with help of visuals sketched on these scrolls. In the later years, the divinely figures gave way to social themes and ordinary figures. The secular objects depicted in these scrolls were carrying meaning of daily life and conduct. As these scrolls started carrying out secular meaning they gained popularity among the common people, who could find themselves in these figures.
