Madhubani Art Workshop with Sri Devi
Madhubani paintings originated in the Mithila region of Bihar. In the Hindu epic Ramayana, King Janaka, Sita’s father, famously asked his painters to create Madhubani paintings for Sita’s wedding. The art form was passed down from generation to generation. The women of the village practiced these paintings on the walls of their home with their paintings often illustrating their thoughts, hopes and dreams. Known for their simplicity, these paintings are largely made using powdered rice and colors derived from turmeric, pollen, pigments, indigo, various flowers, sandalwood, and leaves of various plants and trees, etc. Water bodies, fish, fish, parrot, elephant, turtle, sun, moon etc. are some of the central themes in these paintings.
