Mithila (also known as Madhubani) painting style originated from Nepal and the Bihar state of India. Some of the initial references to the Madhubani painting can be found in the Hindu epic Ramayana when King Janaka, Sita’s father, asks his painters to create Madhubani paintings for his daughter’s wedding. The knowledge was passed down from generation to generation and the paintings began to adorn the houses of the region. The women of the village practised these paintings on the walls of their respective home. Their paintings often illustrated their thoughts, hopes and dreams.
