This Madhubani piece showcases a scene from a ritual performed by a newlywed bride. Indian weddings are packed with pre- and post- celebrations. Several women are pictured attending to the bride as she performs a ritual. The painting depicts several elements that can be seen in Mithila wedding art such as a palanquin (which is usually used to carrya bride to the Gauna ritual).The sun also shines brightly on a corner, colored brightly with rays of yellow, red, and blue, giving his blessings to the festivity below. This painting of a wedding ritual also fully showcases Madhubani art’s hallmark of filling each space on the paper with details and color. From the great detail of the clothes to the detail-packed backdrop, this painting jumps to life with a vibrancy that matches the festive occasion.
