Ramayana is one of the age-old Indian epics, which highlight the rich and respectful culture of Hinduism. The Madhubani art that you see on this page is a prominent ‘Sita Haran’ episode of Ramayana, where Ravana to take revenge for his sister Shurpanakha, disguised himself as a hermit and came to Mother Sita, asking for alms with a condition that she has to come out of her cottage, hence crossing the Lakshmana Rekha and oblige the faux hermit with food, which is when Ravana took his real form and kidnapped Sita in his magical chariot. The painter has painted every aspect of the story with great precision and in a beauteous choice of a bright colour palette.

Madhubani art dwells from a small village, Mithila in Bihar, done by women expressing the creativity and sensitivity of people by depicting themes of religion, love and fertility. The entire painting is veneered with artistic geometric patterns along with spaces occupied with wondrous flowers and birds. With the marvellous light hued background, the artist has gracefully highlighted every colour and feature of this folk art. Underneath the high mountains with the sun shining bright and colourful peacocks perched on the green leafy fruits bearing tree, stands Sita, an ideal wife, daughter and mother in Hinduism with the alms bowl and Ravana (as muni) holding a kamandalu.

Bulging fish-like eyes and pointed noses of the figurines are some of the key features of a real Madhubani painting. Sita is adorned in a fascinating tri-coloured lehenga and sober jewels for perfection, and the long-bearded hermit has solid yellow and black striped dhoti along with a flower motif stole. With the blooming flowers and lush green grass, this Madhubani art is an amazing amalgamation of bright and dull colours. This colourful Sita Haran scene is sure to brighten up your empty wall space.
