This style of Madhubani painting is known as Khobar. These types of paintings were painted on the walls of newlyweds. The paintings are symbolic and depict fertility and love.

 

This painting is inspired by the traditional Madhubani style of painting. This Khobar painting is painted on Imperial size 300gsm (140 lb.) Bockingford paper with Watercolour and Ink.

 

Madhubani style of painting is also known as Mithila Painting. Mithila was a region that is presently part of Bihar in India and Nepal. The roots of this art form are believed to be during the Ramayana period which was during the 7th century.

 

This art form was unknown to the outside world until in 1934 an earthquake tumbled the houses of this region and the then British colonial officer in Madhubani stumbled upon the paintings.

 

The myth goes that when Sita was to be married to Rama the father of Sita, King Janaka, the ruler of Mithila commissioned local artists to paint murals in his palace. Originally these paintings were done on the walls of Khobar Ghar or the nuptial chamber of newlyweds. The walls were coated with mud and cow dung and Madhubani paintings were created on them. Like most art forms Madhubani art took inspiration from nature and Hindu mythological motifs.

 

Usually, the paintings do not leave any space and the blank spaces are filled with designs of flowers, animals, birds, flowers, plants, or geometric patterns. Bright colours were used and they were sourced from natural ingredients like turmeric, lime, milk of banyan tree, a red flower named Kusum, sandalwood, rose, rice powder, etc.
