The Sun and the Moon can never meet but are linked together for life. And so is the majestic love story of Hindu mythological characters Krishna and Radha. This particular piece of art is dedicated to the concept of such everlasting love.
This pen holder is hand-made from ground up. Right from kneading the mud, to shaping, colouring everything in and around it, was done by hands. Also, NO PENS OR MARKERS HAVE BEEN USED IN THIS ARTWORK. Each and Everything is done using BRUSHES (even the outlines and detailing).
About the Art:
Madhubani painting is one of the many famous Indian art forms. As it is practiced in the Mithila region of Bihar and Nepal, it is called Mithila or Madhubani art. Often characterized by complex geometrical patterns, these paintings are known for representing ritual content for particular occasions, including festivals, religious rituals, etc. The colors used in Madhubani paintings are usually derived from plants and other natural sources. These colors are often bright and traditionally the pigments like lampblack and ochre were used to create black and brown respectively. Instead of contemporary brushes, objects like twigs, matchsticks and even fingers were used to create the paintings.
