Aspect of Daily Life of Madhubani Women

The famous artwork of Mithila region of Bihar of the Indian Subcontinent, Madhubani paintings is famous world-wide. When it comes to ethnic 'tribal' paintings of India the name that top the list is Madhubani paintings. Madhubani paintings, also known as Mithila, Maithili, Godhna, and Chitra figure paintings are handmade paintings. People of Madhubani used to believe that each morning God visits their houses to bless them with luck and prosperity. So, Madhubani people started painting their walls, doors and floors with beautiful designs in order to welcome God. Today, the paintings from walls and floors have shifted to paper, cloth, satin, sarees, dupattas, etc. on the same format and themes of religion and mythology.

This amazing Madhubani painting depicts the life of Madhubani women in Bihar region. The women of Madhubani region are said to be very hardworking and dexterous. Besides making beautiful Madhubani paintings, these women are adept at household tasks. In this painting also, women of Madhubani regions can be seen performing several different tasks. Two women are busy grinding grains with the help of mortar and pestle, while another woman is busy cooking food on traditional gas, called Chullah or earthen fireplace. It depicts the joint family system and Madhubani culture.

Then there are kids standing beside their mothers. The scene is typically inspired by the rural region of Bihar, displaying how women of Madhubani spend their whole day working and looking after their families. The painting signifies the importance of family and family life. Also, it shows how people in Madhubani region are connected and live together in harmony. The beautiful colors used in the painting are extracted naturally and the floral patterned border of the painting simply makes it look gorgeous.

Bandanwar (festoon) strung on the entrance is to create a cheery and celebratory atmosphere.
