Mithila painting (or Madhubani painting as it is now beginning to be called) is a style of Indian painting practiced in the Mithila region of Bihar and the adjoining parts of Terai in Nepal. These paintings were done traditionally by the women on freshly plastered mud walls and floors of huts but now they are also done on cloth, handmade paper and canvas. These use two-dimensional imagery and the colors used are derived from plants. There are paintings for each occasion and festival such as birth, marriage, holi, surya shasti, kali puja, durga puja and the sacred thread ceremony. There are three styles of Madhubani painting - Kachni (only line work, usually monochrome), Bharni (the subjects are filled with solid color) and Godhana (the figures appear in concentric circles on parallel lines).
