Now is the time to create an art form, that will help you to express your emotions, you'll be more observant to the details and a great stress buster itself. Madhubani painting originated in a small village, known as Maithili, of the Bihar state of India. Initially, the women folk of the village drew the paintings on the walls of their home, as an illustration of their thoughts, hopes, and dreams. The traditional base of freshly plastered mud wall of the hut has now been replaced by cloth, handmade paper, and canvas. Since the paintings have been confined to a limited geographical range, the themes as well as the style, are more or less the same.
Indian Maithili paintings make use of three-dimensional images and the colours used are derived, mainly from plants. The themes on which these paintings are based include nature and mythological events. The first reference to the Maithili painting of Bihar dates back to the time of Ramayana, when King Janaka ordered the paintings to be created for his daughter, Sita's wedding. The symbols used in this painting form have specific meaning like fish symbolizes fertility, procreation and good luck, peacocks are associated with romantic love and religion, and tree is the symbol of life.
