Cushion Cover - Mithila Art - Set of 2
Colorful handpainted cushion cover features peacock and fish (Pink & Yellow)
Madhubani painting is famous folk art of Bihar, a state in India. Initially it was practised on walls and floors of the house but of late this art is also being used to decorate clothes and upholstery.
It takes a lot of practice to make this painting on clothes as this is free hand art and no stencil is used to draw. Popular themes that are painted include Hindu mythological stories, Alpana and day to day rituals.
The style used for this painting is the Bharni style and Kachni. Artists use bamboo pen, metal nib, and old cloth rags to make this painting.
This particular painting depicts the peacock in love and the fishes have the thirst for love.
