The Bengal Patua Scrolls or Patachitra Poetry feature stories from the great Hindu epics such as Ramayana, Mahabharata and Sufi traditions which are also sung frame by frame. These scrolls are painted with vegetable dyes fixed with a vegetable gum on paper. The panels are sewn together and fabric from old sarees is glued to the back to strengthen the scroll.
