Madhubani paintings are known for their unique and creative take on everyday scenes. From religious iconography, celebrations, and of course nature, Madhubani artists present their creative take on these aspects of life in a vibrant and detail-filled manner. In this painting, the main subject is the image of the Tree of Life, one of the most recognizable motifs in India and even beyond. It traces its reference as far as the Vedic period, where the Tree is believed to be a dwelling place of God, and eventually became a symbol of life and knowledge.
In this artistic take on the Tree of Life, the trunk of the tree is painted with an eye-catching element. In its place is an image of a fish stylistically drawn within a heart-shape. The fish is another popular motif among the art in India and for a long time has been associated with fertility, abundance, and even conjugal happiness. They also stand for freedom and liberty, freely able to swim and survive despite disasters like floods. To complete the image of harmony, a glorious peacock has its feathers spread at the center. The bird represents beauty and grace. Together with the heart-shaped form of the fish, the animals signify the beauty of life and love. Red-orange hue dominates the backdrop while the peacock and fish at the center standout with white color accented with yellow and blue.
