Their stories depict Hindu mythology or history story. With changing times, the Patuas have crafted their scrolls reflecting social issues, such as literacy and environment. The paintings are traditionally made from handmade paper, backed with cloth. Indigenous plants and minerals are still used to create the paint, including turmeric, vermillion, and burnt rice.
