Madhubani a.k.a. Mithila art is an ancient mystical art form having its rich origins from Ramayana period. Originated in the Mithila region which is located between the Himalayan foothills and the Ganges plains of India & Nepal, this unique art commands immense global respect and cultural significance today due to many myths and folklore attached to it
Shrouded in antiquity and mythology, Madhubani painting is traditionally done with fingers, twigs, brushes, nib-pens and matchsticks – using natural dyes and pigments. It is characterized especially by its eye-catching geometrical patterns. Originally, the colors to make Madhubani paintings were derived from plants and natural sources.
Madhubani Art is a powerful manifestation of the philosophical heights achieved by ancient Indian civilization for the universal power of love, longing and peace. Although the art exists over thousands of years, in modern times, it received its official recognition only in the year 1970 when the President of India gave award of excellence to one of its key patrons Ms Jagdamba Devi of Madhubani, Bihar. Other celebrated Madhubani artists worth mention are : Ms Mahasundari Devi, Ms Sita Devi, Ms Godavari Dutt, and Ms Bharti Dayal.
