Madhubani Painting
Madhubani Painting
Description
From the Jacket: The art of Madhubani is purposive mythology. Not art in the sense of 'significant form' of the West.The paintings are legends to which the folk turn to pray in the daily ritual. The sources of the folk art of Madhubani lie in the dim areas of silence, of the approximation to the heightened moments of creation itself. By a mystical transformation of brush movements hand gestures and emotive involvement, the artist transforms the bodies into spirits: the flowers and birds enliven paintings that dare to reach the depth. Squatting on the cowdung plastered floors of their homes, which are surrounded by mango and banana groves beyond a green pond, women daily paint pictures. They have been doing this ritual color work for generations.

Testimonials

Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.

Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.

Your products are uncommon yet have advanced my knowledge and devotion to Sanatana Dharma. Also, they are reasonably priced and ship quickly. Thank you for all you do.

Thank you kindly for the Cobra Ganesha from Mahabalipuram. The sculpture is exquisite quality and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to order again or refer people to your business. Thanks again.

The variety, the quality and the very helpful price range of your huge stock means that every year I find a few new statues to add to our meditation room--and I always pick up a few new books and cds whenever I visit! keep up the good work!

THANK YOU SO MUCH for your kind generosity! This golden-brass statue of Padmasambhava will receive a place of honor in our home and remind us every day to practice the dharma and to be better persons. We deeply appreciate your excellent packing of even the largest and heaviest sculptures as well as the fast delivery you provide. Every sculpture we have purchased from you over the years has arrived in perfect condition. Our entire house is filled with treasures from Exotic India, but we always have room for one more!
