The origins of Madhubani paintings are quite unknown. However, it is believed that King Janak, ruler of Mithila Kingdom in the 8th or 7th century BC, had asked to develop these paintings in order to capture the moments of his daughter Sita's wedding to Prince Rama. Madhubani painting (Mithila painting) originated from Madhubani district of the Mithila region of Bihar. Artists create these paintings using a variety of mediums, including their own fingers, or twigs, brushes, nib-pens, and matchsticks.
Madhubani paintings mostly depict people and their association with nature and natural objects like the sun, the moon, and religious plants like tulsi along with scenes from the royal court and weddings. In these paintings, no space is left empty; the gaps are filled by paintings of flowers, animals, birds, and even geometric designs. Here’s a beautiful colourful painting on the harmony that exists in nature between animals, birds and plants.
