Buy Madhubani Paintings – A Gift from the Wedding of Rama and Sita
Madhubani, an area part of Northern Bihar, is home to some simple but stunning paintings that date back to over 2,500 years and part of Lord Rama Sita’s wedding.
These paintings are typically done on hand made paper and by applying natural colours. What is interesting is the application of cow dung which brings in a wall like texture to the painting.
We find religious and mythological themes as well as the celebration of nature but the geometrical patterns in these paintings make them distinctive.
With so many national award winners there are a range of paintings with subtle variations. The designs are varied and these paintings come in both rich colour and monochromatic versions.
Madhubani paintings can bring in the rustic feel to any living space and can easily blend into both traditional and contemporary homes.
