Mithila painting

The Mithila painting is one of the living creative activities of the women of Bihar. It is a form of folk painting on paper, cloth, readymade garments, movable objects that is mainly done by the village women of Mithila. Originally it was a folk art, practiced by women of all castes and communities using natural and vegetable colours. Since it’s practised in only one village, and very few women make these paintings, we know that it’s one of the dying traditions of India.
