A recurrent motif in Indian art, the tree of life stands for all that is steady and rooted and nourishing and life-affirming. It is especially common in folk art forms such as the fine Madhubani that you see on this page. Note the luxuriant network of branches that stem from below the horizontal midline of the composition and spread about the rest of the canvas, filling it up with a pale-coloured canopy of verdure. Miniscule fruitions in gold and white lace the thick brown branches of the tree of life.

Note the peacocks that flank the unbranched section of the shoot. From their green-coloured bodies emerges a sway of gorgeous plumage. Zoom in on the same to take in the beauty of the coloured patterns on the surface. This section is precisely done, dense with life and colour and motif. It is a remarkable feat given the rudimentary techniques that go into making the authentic Madhubani painting. The matte saffron edges add to the basic, earthy colour palette of the work.
