Folk Art of Bihar
Long time ago, at the time of Ramayana, King Janak, Sita’s father asked the artists of Mithila region in Bihar to do a painting of his daughter’s marriage to Lord Rama. This is how the tradition of Madhubani also called Mithila painting started.
It was earlier done on walls, but now people do it on paper and cloth. The colors were made from plants. The motifs were from nature and mythological events and themes revolved around Hindu deities and natural objects like sun, moon etc.
This style of painting does not leave any empty space. The gaps are filled in by flowers, animals or any geometrical patterns. Traditionally, madhubani painting was taught by mothers to their daughters, but now every one does it.
The painting on the box is of an “Elephant”. The colour cards in the kit are a collection of animals drawn in Madhubani style. Now, you color all animals from the jungles of Madhubani and make your own collection.
