Contentment of life


In this Madhubani painting, multiple rows of figures have been painted on handmade paper. Linear figures of women are alternated with iamges of elephants in profile. It juxtaposes the humble women with the most majestic elephants. The royal elephants and the rows of women may also be seen as a part of marriage ritual where the royal bridegroom often arrives mounted on an elephant to be greeted by scores of women. Earthen shades of red, orange and yellow symbolizing passion and fertility have been used abundantly. Multi linear borders beautify the edges.
