The Patua Pinocchio is a fresh and exciting visual interpretation of the well-known story of the puppet who longs to become a boy. Swarna Chitrakar, Patua scroll painter from West Bengal, visualizes the tale in her own idiom–drawing on popular Indian iconography, which depicts children as nothing less than divine. In the process, she effortlessly transforms this children's classic into a universal tale.
