Theyyam, a ritualistic performance related to myths and tales, is the most prominent and spectacular form of art in Malabar (the northern region of Kerala, southern India). Theyyam is a form of worshipping gods, goddesses, and legendary heroes that is based on a relatively straightforward idea following appropriate pre-performance rituals, the god or goddess of a temple temporarily manifests itself in the body of a powerful man (the performer), elevating him to divine status One of North Kerala's most ancient indigenous and mystical ceremonial art forms is this one. It's known that there are 400 varieties of Theyyam in northern Kerala Pottan Theyyam is one of the major kinds among them. It stands out from this crowd due to a lot of intruding and entertaining factors of it.
The project's goal is to gain a thorough understanding of Pottan Theyyam in particular and various aspects of Theyyam, in general, It also aims to develop a brief graphic novel for children between the ages of 8 and 12 that can depict the actions of Pottan Theyyam who gave their life in defence of a social cause.
