This painting is fusion of two folk forms of art which belong to completely two different parts of India. Madhubani Painting is from the northern part from a state called Bihar and Kalamkari Painting is from a south state called Andhra Pradesh.
This painting "Birds of Eden" depicts pretty birds which are joyous about their existence in the perfect world and are happily singing and making merry in the company of each other. They are painted in the same tone to eliminate any discrepancy in the name of race, religion, etc. Hence they co-exist peacefully making their world ideal... just like the Garden of Eden.
Its purely free-hand painted without the use of stencils. Its done 100% in paint and brush. No markers are used for the painting. The intricate designing and detailing is most distinguished feature of my pieces.
