About Madhubani Art

Madhubani art, also known as Mithila art, is a form of Indian folk art.  It is practiced in the Mithila region of Bihar state in India.  “Madhubani” art comes from a village by the same name, meaning forests of honey.

It is believed that Madhubani paintings originated during the time of Lord Rama and his wife Sita.  During Sita's marriage to Lord Rama, her father King Janaka commissioned artists to paint the walls of the city Mithila, thus giving rise to the Mithila art.

Madhubani paintings were created by the women of the village of Madhubani and other areas of Mithila.  Theses paintings were traditionally done on freshly plastered mud walls.  The modern day versions of Madhubani are available on cloth, paper and canvas.

Madhubani paintings mostly depict nature and Hindu deities like Krishna, Rama, Shiva, Durga, Lakshmi, and Saraswati.  The sun, the moon, and the religious plants like Tulsi are also widely painted, along with birds, flowers and other geometrical designs.
