The Marriage Symbol

Rambharos Jha

Whenever there is a marriage in our region, the motif of the lotus is painted on the floor. The lotus is revered in our culture; folk songs and stories contain beautiful references to this lovely flower and its broad leaves.

Stunning water creatures come to life on paper in this new collection of art prints. Rendered in the intricate Mithila style from Bihar in eastern India, these illustrations were originally featured in one of our bestselling titles, Waterlife.

Each print is silkscreen-printed by hand on paper recycled from cotton waste. The silkscreen process is a classic technique of printing where layers of ink are transferred onto the surface of paper through mesh screens. The process requires precision and care, each print contains as many layers as it does colours.

Mithila Art

Colourful, vibrant, yet extremely delicate, Mithila art is primarily done by women living in small rural communities in the State of Bihar. Also known as Madhubani painting, this art form originated from the decorative patterns traced by women on the walls and floors of their homes and community spaces.
