The people of Madhubani are religious in nature. Vishnu, Shiva and the Devi are most commonly worshipped and thus portrayed in art.

Using pure pigments and simple themes, they create stories in picture. This painting narrates an interesting episode concerning the great asura Raktabija, who had a boon that whenever a drop of blood fell from his body on the ground, an army of asuras would arise. Devi, in her form as Chamunda, went on drinking Raktabija's blood without letting a single drop fall on the ground.

Chamunda, is seen here in her horrendous form with a garland of skulls and a girdle of severed limbs. She looks furious as she chops and kills with abandon. The left side of the canvas is blood red, containing an army of asuras, which the Devi sucks in. The goddess' hair forms the background behind her, leaving little space for the floral fillings that abound all empty spaces in a Madhubani painting.

Testimonials

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!

I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
