MADHUBANI PAINTINGS

The art of Madhubani painting, is the traditional style developed in the Mithila region, in the villages around Madhubani, Bihar.  Madhubani literally means a forest of honey.  For commercial purposes, the work is now being done on paper, cloth etc.  

Figures from nature & mythology are adapted to suit their style. The themes & designs widely painted are the worship of Hindu deities such as Krishna, Rama, Siva, Durga, Lakshmi, Saraswati, Sun and Moon, Tulasi plant, court scenes, wedding scenes, social happenings around them, etc.  Floral, animal and bird motifs, geometrical designs are used to fill up all the gaps.  There is hardly any empty space in this style. The skill is handed down the generations, and hence the traditional designs and patterns are widely maintained.  

Cotton wrapped around a bamboo stick forms the brush.  The colours applied are prepared by the artists.  Black colour is obtained by mixing soot with cow dung; yellow from turmeric or pollen or lime and the milk of banyan leaves; blue from indigo; red from the kusam flower juice or red sandalwood; green from the leaves of the wood apple tree; white from rice powder; orange from palasha flowers. 

The colours are applied flat with no shading.  There is normally a double line drawn for the outlines, with the gap between the lines filled by cross or straight tiny lines. In the linear painting, no colours are applied.  Only the outlines are drawn.
