About this Item

112pp, 88 ills. Or pictorial card. Slight toning and edge wear to covers. Mithila is a province of Bihar state in north-east India and it is the women-and only the women- who paint. Using vivid colors they produce an astonishing and distinctive art. The subjects are traditional: Tantric scenes, the god Krishna and his flute, Shiva with his wives, the lingum and yoni, scenes from the Hindu epic, the Ramayana. The art remains highly traditional passed on from mother to daughter, and remains an important part of daily and ritual life in the province. Of the 88 ills, 60 are in 2 or 4 colors. Size: 4to.
