This Tussar silk scarf is sketched in Madhubani or Mithila, a style of painting practiced in Mithila, Bihar a state in eastern India. Painting is done with twigs, brushes, nib & matchsticks. Madhubani meaning ‘Forest of Honey’ is an instinctive form of painting. No sketch is made before making the painting; hence it flows with the artist’s imagination. The outline is made with a fine metal nib and then filled with colour. This adds to the incredible exclusivity of each piece.
So only one artist works on a scarf completing the entire painting on any given piece. Each artist has their own unique style of drawing hence a change of hand is not possible as the strokes need to be in harmony. Each piece is cut, stitched, and painted by hand, using natural dyes and pigments.
Madhubani paintings mainly includes natural elements like fish, birds, animals, turtle, sun, moon, bamboo trees and flowers. Different emotions like love, courage, devotion, fertility, and prosperity are often symbolized by geometric patterns, which is another important feature of this art form.
This classical art form dates back 2500 years to the time of Ramayana the ancient Hindu epic.
