Hi Alicia and Anthony,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
Madhubani painting, originating from Bihar, India, is a vibrant art form deeply rooted in tradition. Renowned for its intricate detailing and bold colors, it often depicts mythological themes, religious motifs, and scenes from rural life. Artists predominantly use natural dyes and pigments, creating striking compositions on various mediums like cloth, paper, and walls. Each stroke carries cultural significance, with motifs symbolizing fertility, prosperity, and harmony. Traditionally passed down through generations of women, Madhubani art has gained international recognition for its mesmerizing patterns and cultural richness, transcending boundaries to become a symbol of India's artistic heritage and storytelling prowess.
The market for such paintings is on the modest size and they remain highly collectible to many people because of their affordability and small size.
