Madhubani Paintings






Gods,Goddess and various elements of nature are the preferred subjects for a madhubani artist. Iam really at loss of words.Look at the colours, the simplicity of design and how even a black & white picture can capture our attention. Hats off to the artisans whose resourcefulness has ensured that this art form continues to have a world wide market.

Me too,Patricia!!

Madhubani is done using natural colours and using a brush,made of a piece of cloth tied to the end of a stick.how they manage to finally bring abt a riot of colours on the paper/silk is what amazes me.
The least that we can do for the artists is keep buying their work ...
