A True reflection of Exotic India - Madhubani Painting

   Madhubani Painting
There are many ways in which we can showcase our creativity. But the ancient people had very few ones, one of them is painting. People of different regions devised different forms of paintings. The Madhubani art form was originated from the Mithila region of Bihar, India. It is also called a Mithila painting.

Madhubani art was created by the women of various communities. The uniqueness of this art form is the geometric patterns, which are truly eye-catching. For this painting, you can not only use the brushes but also other instruments like twigs, nib-pens, fingers, matchsticks, etc. mostly the scenes depicted in these paintings are men and their association with nature, deities, and scenes from the ancient epics, etc.

There are some things unique to Madhubani's painting. No empty space is left in these paintings; it is filled with animals, flowers, birds, geometric designs, religious plants, etc. thus, the complete painting is filled with some of the other things. There are 5 distinct styles of painting in Madhubani. They are, tantric, katchni, godna, bharni and gohbar.
This art form has received National and International recognition. The skills of this art have been passed on through centuries and more or less the style and content have remained the same. Because of this, Madhubani art has got the coveted Geographical Indication status. Hence, it can be called a true reflection of exotic India.

Because of these Madhubani paintings, the scenes from the ancient epics, weddings, and royal courts have been preserved efficiently; something which other art forms have hardly been able to do. Although, Madhubani painting is not as declining as the other art forms, still, the coming generations must learn and master this beautiful painting style which completely fulfills our creativity and satisfaction.
