Contentment of life-Madhubani Painting

Contentment of lifeDimensions : 21 x 14 Inches

The folk art of Madhubani paintings is an exclusive regime of the women of Madhubani and its adjacent areas in Bihar, India. A long tradition of hereditary artistry has kept this artform alive for centuries. Having originated out of the humble domestic rituals and everyday life of women, this art has become a window to the otherwise curtained feminine world. In this particular artwork, multiple rows of figures have been painted on handmade paper. Linear figures of women are teemed with figures of elephants in profile, juxtaposing the most humble with the most elegant.

The royal elephants and the rows of women may also be seen as a part of marriage ritual where the royal bridegroom often arrives mounted on an elephant to be greeted by scores of women. Earthen shades of red, orange and yellow symbolizing passion and fertility have been used abundantly. Multi linear borders beautify the edges.
