About the Artwork +

Madhubani paintings are largely inspired by the Hindu Mythology. This particular painting by Ambika Devi is a portrait of the divine feminine energy, Goddess Shakti, who embodies power, strength and creative energy. The snake around Goddess Shakti's neck symbolizes her control over primal life forces and her ability to transcend Earthly limitations, while the trident in her hand is a destroyer of negativity and protects the devotees. Such portraits of Gods and Goddesses are usually placed in houses and temples and are worshipped by the devotees. While the presence of the snake and trident in the artwork adds to the mystical and spiritual element of the artwork, even the use of the yellow colour in the background symbolises divinity and celestial realms and is often used to depict Gods and Goddesses in Madhubani paintings. The yellow in the background in contrast to the vibrant colours used to paint Goddess Shakti, adds harmony and balance to the painting. Goddess Shakti is worshipped as the Goddess of fertility, power, and the creator of the universe. The Madhubani paintings originating from Bihar, which is largely an agrarian state, often depicts Goddess Shakti as the people from the Mithila region pray to Goddess Shakti for abundance of harvests and prosperity. She is known as a motherly loving and caring figure who removes all obstacles from the devotee’s life and liberates the devotee from world suffering, aiding his/her spiritual growth.

Madhubani


Madhubani art/ Mithila art (the term ‘Madhubani’ translates to ‘forest of honey’) originating from the Mithila region of Bihar, India is a traditional art form celebrated for its beautiful patterns, vibrant colors, and rich cultural significance. Traditionally, these paintings were executed by women on the walls and floors of homes during festivals, weddings, and religious ceremonies. The paintings depict subjects based on Hindu mythology, nature, folklore, and everyday life. Overall, Madhubani art is the creative representation of all the motifs, colors, and forms found in the vicinity and incorporates a blend of history, tradition, and mythology. Legend There are various legends associated with Madhubani art. However, one of the popular beliefs states that King Janak (Father of Sita mentioned in Ramayana) commissioned craftsmen to decorate the state to celebrate her daughter’s wedding with lord Rama. Hence, establishing the tradition of Madhubani art in the region. Tradition and Technique Madhubani artists use natural pigments derived from plants, flowers, and minerals to create the art. Traditionally they hand-painted the designs using bamboo sticks or twigs; however, brushes are generally in use these days. The common motifs used in the composition include geometric shapes, floral designs, peacocks, fish, elephants, and scenes from Hindu epics. Each motif carries its own symbolism, often representing fertility, prosperity, love, and harmony. In the 1960s, a severe drought prompted the Indian government to support local artisans which gained international recognition for Madhubani art. Since then, Madhubani art has evolved from wall and floor paintings to various mediums, including canvases, textiles, pottery, and even contemporary art installations. Manju Devi, Ganga Devi, Jagdamba Devi, and Bharti Dayal are some of the notable Madhubani artists.
