Mithila or Madhubani Painting of a Pale Sun
An old Mithila painting of two women paying homage to a pale yellow sun.
Soft natural dues were used to create this old Madhubani painting. The sun is a popular image for Mithila painters, it has a smiling face. After all, without it life wouldn't exist.
Two women are facing the sun in a field full of flowers; one is brandishing a scythe. Cows form a decorative border around the painting.
