Madhubani is a style of painting traditionally created by women in the Mithila region Bihar State in India, as well as parts of Terai in Nepal. The paintings were traditionally painted on walls of mud huts with colored powdered rice paste. They are typically done with a mixture of fingers, twigs, and matchsticks, using natural dyes and pigments. They typically depict connections to nature and ancient deities. Many contemporary Madhubani artists embrace issues such as education, women's rights, and marriage equality through their work.
