Mithila Art.
Madhubani Art is a style of Indian painting, practiced in the Mithila region of the Indian subcontinent.
It was traditionally created by the women of various communities in the Mithila region of the Indian subcontinent. It was one of the skills that was passed down from generation to generation in the families of the Mithila Region, mainly by women. It originated from Madhubani district of the Mithila region of Bihar. This painting as a form of wall art was practiced widely throughout the region; the more recent development of painting on paper and canvas mainly originated among the villages around Madhubani,
The paintings are traditionally done on freshly plastered mud walls and floors of huts, but now they are also done on cloth, handmade paper and canvas. The style uses two-dimensional imagery, and the colors used are derived from plants. Ochre, Lampblack and Red are used for reddish-brown and black, respectively.
Madhubani paintings mostly depict people and their association with nature and scenes and deities from the ancient epics. Natural objects like the sun, the moon, and religious plants like Holy Basil are also widely painted, along with scenes from the royal court and social events like weddings. Generally, no space is left empty; the gaps are filled by paintings of flowers, animals, birds, and even geometric designs. It is still practiced and kept alive in institutions spread across the Mithila region.
