Psychedelic Peacock Madhubani

Psychedelic Peacock Madhubani

You know a Madhubani when you see it. Spectacular geometric curves, bold black silhouettes complemented by minimal colouring, and a quintessentially Indian theme. This one has been handpicked from the studios of local artisans in the region in present-day Bihar. It is done on handmade paper with pigments made from traditional ingredients such as blended lampblack and rice powder. The beauty of the Indian peacock has been captured to perfection in this abstract composition that relies on a repetition of its one-of-a-kind feather-motif. Given how Madhubani art originated with gentle womenfolk seeking to decorate their dwellings, conceiving of this image on the scale of a mud-hut wall would begin to give you an idea of its charm.

A peacock with an elaborate, layered plumage constitutes the foreground. Its tiny body is made up of motifs, some of which are strategically filled in with paint, to create patterns that are seemingly hallucinogenic. On each corner of the bottom edge of the canvas is a scampering deer looking up at the gracious plumage in the centre. Two more peacocks with slightly less glamorous plumages grace the corners of the upper edge of the painting. The spaces amidst these gentle faunal motifs is filled in with more peacock feathers and coconut vines. Not how similar vines run along all four edges of the painting, which lends the composition some sort of a frame.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
