Aspect of Daily Life of Madhubani Women

The famous artwork of Mithila region of Bihar of the Indian Subcontinent, Madhubani paintings is famous world-wide. When it comes to ethnic 'tribal' paintings of India the name that top the list is Madhubani paintings. Madhubani paintings, also known as Mithila, Maithili, Godhna, and Chitra figure paintings are handmade paintings. People of Madhubani used to believe that each morning God visits their houses to bless them with luck and prosperity. So, Madhubani people started painting their walls, doors and floors with beautiful designs in order to welcome God. Today, the paintings from walls and floors have shifted to paper, cloth, satin, sarees, dupattas, etc. on the same format and themes of religion and mythology.

This amazing Madhubani painting depicts the life of Madhubani women in Bihar region. The women of Madhubani region are said to be very hardworking and dexterous. Besides making beautiful Madhubani paintings, these women are adept at household tasks. In this painting also, women of Madhubani regions can be seen performing several different tasks. Two women are busy grinding grains with the help of mortar and pestle, while another woman is busy cooking food on traditional gas, called Chullah or earthen fireplace. It depicts the joint family system and Madhubani culture.

Then there are kids standing beside their mothers. The scene is typically inspired by the rural region of Bihar, displaying how women of Madhubani spend their whole day working and looking after their families. The painting signifies the importance of family and family life. Also, it shows how people in Madhubani region are connected and live together in harmony. The beautiful colors used in the painting are extracted naturally and the floral patterned border of the painting simply makes it look gorgeous. Similar kinds of borders can be seen on the windows and doors of the house. The green color at the base signifies greenery and prosperity. This painting is done on handmade paper. Bandanwar (festoon) strung on the entrance is to create a cheery and celebratory atmosphere.

A Statue was ordered on Dec 22nd and Paid 194.25 including FREE DELIVERY for me as a GIFT for Christmas and they Confirmed that it will be there in 4-5 days but it NEVER arrived till 30th of December and inspite of my various emails they only replied that it is being finished and will be shipped in 24hrs but that was a LIE and no further delivery information was every sent to me. I called and left a message on the phone number listed on their website which is a NY number but no one answered that phone and I left messages but no reply or update on my Statue was sent to me inspite of my daily emails to know the status. I still await this Statue but NO RESPONSIBLE REPLY.
