By A Pond, The Life-Giving Tree

$155
The life-giving tree is a recurrent motif in folk art. This is because the tree is a highly venerated entity in Indian culture. It is the source of shade and nourishment, the very image of treasured values such as rootedness and forbearance and fortitude that is unshakeable. Which is why the tree is a life-giving entity and portrayed as such. The painting that you see on this page is but a dense tree of life nourishing a wide variety of life conveyed with generous proportions of colour.

Thick black lines interspersed with fine, densely veined leaves. Superimposed on the same is a plethora of peacocks, the profuse pastels of their plumage being the only colours in this Madhubani painting, a style otherwise known for its basic bitone colour palettes. Note how the peacocks are roosting in amorous couples. Bound by twin rows of abstract animal motifs is a pond with pastel-coloured fish. Blue-, orange-, yellow-, and red-finned fish swim harmoniously in the pond with their mouths together.
