Here is my first item that I put on sale on EBay.

This beautiful painting is done in the traditional art form of Madhubani. This art form dates back to the days of Ramayana and originated at the occasion of the marriage of Lord Rama with Sita at the kingdom of Mithila (now part of the state of Bihar, India).

Madhubani Paintings have been traditionally done on mud walls by the women of villages around the present town of Madhubani (literally meaning forest of Honey). These paintings use natural colors derived from plants, ochre and lampblack.

This painting, done over Silk depicts 3 Hindu deities:

   Saraswati: The Goddess of Knowledge
   Ganesha: The Lord of Success
   Lakshmi: The Goddess of Prosperity

By: Pallavi Singh
