Study of the Pithora paintings by the Rathwas of Chhota Nagpur

I had been wanting to work on the Pithora paintings made by the Rathwas as a part of their religious traditions. The award enabled me to supplement library work with empirical fieldwork. This enabled me to develop a perspective on the social and religious belief patterns of the community. It will also help me in conducting further comparative research.
