Story Behind the Art:
'A vivid and creative imagination is essential in this style of art, for while motifs may be similar, no two paintings will ever be the same,' Devendra Kumar Jha and Family explain. 'Mother, a state award winner, was our mentor.' This folk tradition is kept alive by women in northern Bihar. They depict events from epic, mythology and traditional designs. Once painted on floors and walls of their houses, now they are painted on handmade paper or silk using natural colors and fabric dyes. Brushes, sharpened reeds and pen nibs are used.
