A Bond of Love

Madhubani artform, also called Mithila painting, is said to have developed in the ancient Indian city of Mithila, the birthplace of Sita (wife of Hindu Lord Rama).

Mithila paintings with attractively vibrant colors merged with fingers, nibs, brushes and twigs mostly depict mythological figures as well as people and their association with nature, and scenes and deities from the ancient epics. Natural objects like the sun, the moon, and religious plants like tulsi are also widely painted. This folk art form has five different styles with distinct features. These include Kachni, Bharni, Tantrik, Godna and Kohbar.

This particular artwork is inspired by a popular piece of Kachni style of Madhubani art. This particular art form has a unique individual style, mainly made using a monochrome or only two colors. In this style, elaborate line paintings are made. The images are filled with closely drawn parallel lines or small dots.

The artwork here depicts two elephants who are bonded in love, feeling each other under a tree that houses a peacock on either side. The intricate patterns done in pen and only two colors add a deep artistic touch to this piece. When I started making this piece, I hadn’t anticipated myself to be so deeply attached to it but the depth of the lines and the patterns pulled me towards it.. This is one of my favorite artworks, the one that I cannot part with. If you wish to buy this piece, I would be happy to make one for your wall with colors of your choice. This folk art adds elegance and class to your room, and also brings you a step closer to your roots, so contact here to order yours!
