“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see” – Edgar Degas

The Madhubani style of painting can be traced to the Madhubani district in Bihar, literally meaning ‘a forest of honey’, where women spent a lot of time making these paintings on the walls of their homes. The women used their keen sense of beauty to create evocative paintings of gods and goddesses, animals, and characters from mythology, They are two-dimensional imagery done with natural pigments and dyes and through the use of varied tools like matchsticks, twigs, nib-pens, brushes, and fingers. The artwork is recognized by its dominant use of geometrical patterns and evocative images of Gods and Goddesses and mythological animals and characters in vibrant colors.
