Orissa's folkart is connected with its social and religious activities. In the month of Margasira
(December) Oriya housewives worship goddess Laxmi on every Thursday. This is the paddy harvesting season. Farmers thrash out the gains and store in house. Housewives prepare pithas ( Rice pan cakes) by white rice paste and decorate the mud walls and floors of their houses. They are called Jhoti or Chita in Oriya. This attempt is not merely decoration of the house but to establish a relationship between the mystical the material. So these murals in white rice paste are meaningful. On different occasions the Jhoti or Chita is drawn.
This reflects a native housewife is cooking traditionally. The wall of house was made up of mud with painting Jhoti or Chita.The bamboo cane product is Kula which separates paddy from its husk manually.A small container call pachia( made from palm leaves) is meant for keeping any solid things.
