Presenting an exquisite work of Madhubani art featuring an episode from the Hindu epic, Ramayana. It depicts four of the main characters, Rama, Lakhsmana, Sita & Ravana.
The Ramayana is a Sanskrit epic poem ascribed to the Hindu sage and Sanskrit poet Valmiki. It is regarded as one of the two great works of Indian literature, along with the Mahabharata. It depicts the duties of relationships, portraying ideal characters like the ideal father, the ideal servant, the ideal brother, the ideal wife, and the ideal king. The Ramayana consists of 24,000 verses and tells the story of Rama whose wife Sita is abducted by Ravana, the king of Lanka (current day Sri Lanka). The characters are all fundamental to the cultural consciousness of India, Nepal, and many south-east Asian countries such as Thailand and Indonesia.
Madhubani painting or Mithila painting is a style of Indian painting, practiced in the Mithila region of Bihar state, India and the adjoining parts of Terai in Nepal. Paintings are characterized by eye-catching geometrical patterns and celebrate a harmony of man with God & nature.
