This Madhubani interpretation showcases the Tree of Life with a unique artistic touch. This style of painting uses natural colors to make the painting come alive. Take for example the trunk, branches, and leaves of the tree which are all unified with solid brown coloring. At the foot of the tree is a pair of peacocks. This majestic bird holds significance as India’s national bird and the vehicle of the God Kartikeya, son of Lord Shiva. These birds embody grace and power, capturing the beauty of life with their eye-catching plumage. Such vibrancy is also depicted in this painting. The pair of peacocks also has details of fish on their bodies. Fish also embody life, as the Madhubani people consider it as one of the first animals to live thanks to the sacred rivers. The fish is a fitting element on this artwork depicting the life (tree) and the celebration thereof (majestic peacock). It carries a traditional Madhubani color palette involving natural hues such as brown, green, red, orange, and blue.
