The art of Madhubani is purposive mythology. Not art in the sense of 'significant form' of the West. The paintings are legends to which the folk turn to pray in the daily ritual. The sources of the folk art of Madhubani lie in the dim areas of silence, of the approximation to the heightened moments of creation itself. By a mystical transformation of brush movements, the artist transforms the bodies into spirits: the flowers and birds enliven paintings that dare to reach the depth.
