Artshala: Madhubani Painting

Madhubani started off as a form of Bhitti Chitra (wall art) as people painted the walls of their houses to mark special occasions like festivals, marriages, etc. It is said to have originated in erstwhile Mithila, which included Bihar, Jharkhand and certain parts of Southern Nepal, including Janakpur, which is hailed as Raja Janak’s (Sita’s father) kingdom.
