Madhubani painting is an art of depicting traditional festivals and events in a colorful manner, painted in geometric patterns and striking features. Here two women, maybe the two daughters-in-law of the house are busy in their daily household chore of grinding flour to serve the family with delicious chapatis. Zoom in to see the traditional hand chakki, made in a stylized lotus pattern in elegant color combinations.
The two women sit on either side on a check printed carpet; garbed in vibrant and primary colored attires of a blend of red-blue and pink-purple, having geometric shaped motifs. The alluring design of their gold jewels and the fineness of their attires reflects the status of their elegant and royal taste of fashion. Expression of their eyes, long accessorized hairs and sweet smiling lips shows the happiness they feel in the new family and in each other’s company.
Bordered in bright orange diamonds with a background depicting a typical small village, with a small blue house on one side and the other occupied by the dense tree, loaded with fruits and beautiful peacocks screaming with each other and enhancing the beauty of the place. This art is done using natural dyes and pigments with the help of brushes, twigs, fingers, matchsticks and nib-pens.
