This Madhubani painting depicts a pair of fish swimming towards each other amongst water plants. It is mounted on handmade paper, with a wooden frame and has a glass cover for protection.
It was made by women artisans in the Mithila region of Bihar. The brushes used are made from cotton wrapped around a bamboo stick. All colours are made from natural ingredients. To make the outlines, a double line was drawn and the gap between the lines filled with tiny crossed lines.
As per local legend, Madhubani paintings were first created when King Janaka decided to decorate his kingdom Janakpur for the wedding of his daughter Sita to Lord Ram of Ayodhya. The walls of kohbar ghar or nuptial chamber were the traditional location for these paintings, which were made by the women folk. Madhubani was originally a form of bhitti chitra, or wall art but cloth, handmade paper and canvas are the mediums used these days.
