Abstract:Orissa has 62 tribal communities. This region has remained fairly isolated from the sweep of invasions and imperial traditions, as a result of which cultural forms have remained relatively pure. Orissa's tribal art possesses certain characteristics that are common to almost all tribal art. It is functional and utilitarian, but also religious or ritualistic in nature.The article discusses sculpture, terracottas, metalware, votive objects, textiles, jewellery and ornamentation, and wall-paintings.
