State Awardee, Asha Devi from Bihar
Madhubani Painting - Happiness of a Housewife
The painting depicts the daily chores done by women in Madhubani. Since, there are no individual water source in every household in village, women go to the nearest fresh water source (pond or river) to fetch water for daily purpose (drinking, cooking etc). It is very common for them to carry multiple pots simultaneously to avoid multiple trips. The facial expression of woman aptly captures her belief in this painting. The painting is made on hand-made paper and comes without a frame.

Madhubani Art dates back to the epochal period of Ramayana. According to mythology, King Janak ordered his subjects to decorate the entire town during Sita’s swayamvar. Since women generally stayed indoor, they decorated the walls with beautiful paintings.
The painting has been made by State awardee artist Asha Devi from Bihar.
