The arts and crafts present the true picture of Orissa's cultural richness. Diverse and varied, the craftsmen of this state still retain their indigenousness, trying to refine it to suit a changing sensibility. The appliqué work in Orissa is done primarily in articles relating to religious observances. The traditional art of Patachitra remains as fresh as it was centuries ago. Mute stones are transformed into living expressions with the art of stone carving. The testimony of this art can be witnessed on the walls of the well known Lingaraja, Jagannatha and Konark temples.
