Sohrai painting is one of the four prominent forms of tribal art found in the state of Jharkhand. The women of farming communities of Hazaribagh district maintain a vibrant tradition of mural painting practiced as a ritual art form known as Sohrai. Sohrai is the art of harvest festival in autumn, using red, black, yellow and white earth. Large voting images are painted with twigs and kuchis on the walls - bulls, horses with riders, wild animals, trees, lotuses, peacocks, and horned deities. Sohrai paintings are considered to be good luck paintings.
