Chittara is a native art practice of the Deevaru community. The drawings are intricate patterns that represent the auspicious ceremonies and rituals of life symbolised in geometric patterns. It is a socio- cultural art practice of women passed on from generation to generation using ecofriendly materials. For details, call 080-22235413, 98860-64822; email or visit
