There is a delightful rhythm in the sound of the word Madhubani (meaning the forest of honey), a name to reckon with in the history of Indian paintings. To the people of Madhubani, marriage is an important ritual. Special motifs are painted in kohbar ghar (the place where the nuptial night is arranged).

This kohbar painting has a lotus motif pierced by a bamboo shaft representing sexual union of the bride and the bridegroom. In the pictorial depiction of this motif, the most essential features include the central vertical stem with a broad base and a pointed pinnacle, the latter being in the form of a lotus bud with a woman's face painted on it. The stem itself is shown scudded with lotus flower ornamentation. Cutting across the centre of the stem is the central lotus leaf medallion, which is surrounded by six, almost similar medallions forming a ring. The remaining spaces within and around the ring are filled with a network of stalks, symmetrically spreading in all directions, interconnecting the medallions. The rim of the entire plant is shown dotted with a row of parrots.

On either side of this central motif are the faces of the bride and the bridegroom. The auspicious kalas, fish and turtle, symbolic of fertility are also seen around this. The lower half of the painting is narrative in nature. It shows the couple performing the gauri-puja. Furthermore, it shows the bridegroom in a palanquin followed by another one carrying the bride to his home.

This painting of the kohbarghara is a queer mixture of aestheticism, ecstasy and sex.
