Anjana Kumari

Anjana Devi is a Bihar-based Manjusha craftsman with a bachelor's degree in fine arts from Pracheen Kala Kendra, Chandigarh. Her artistic journey began in her childhood, nurtured by her mother, the renowned Manjusha artisan Nirmala Devi, and her brother, Manjusha Kala Guru as recognized by the Ministry of Culture in 2014. Anjana, after embracing her domestic responsibilities, later chose to make Manjusha art her family's primary source of income. Today, alongside her husband, they are full-time professional Manjusha artists, undertaking government contracts, exhibiting their creations, and teaching this art at various institutes. Anjana's dedication and talent shine brightly, crowned with the 'Rajya Medha Puruskar' in 2016-17, celebrating her exceptional contributions to the craft. Join her on a captivating journey where tradition meets innovation, and each stroke of her artistic brush tells a rich tale of Manjusha artistry.


Manjushi is a historical marvel of an artform. This art form, which originated in the ancient region of Anga, present-day Bihar, was thought to be practised only by two castes: the Kumbhakar, who made the pots on which the art work was done, and the Malakar, who made the ceremonial boxes on which abstract folklore was painted. Manjushi, on the other hand, was not limited to simple objects and was also used to decorate houses and places of worship. This ancient artform was a vital part of the culture and tradition of those who practised it, conveying faith to people throughout history.
