Kohbar Art - A window into the Mithila culture!

Story of the Painting

Kohbar is the most auspicious ritual painting made during a marriage ceremony in the Mithila region. It is painted on the walls of the nuptial chamber or 'Kohbar ghar' by women of the house where the bride and groom perform various 'pujas' and rituals to get blessings from God and elder family members. 'Kohbar ghar' is also the place where the newly married couple consummate their marriage and thus love and prosperity are the main aspects of Kohbar art.

     - This Kohbar paintings has a central mandala surrounded by 6 other mandalas which are stylized lotus leaves with floral pattern inside. A vertical stem cuts through the central mandala that connects the leaves with the roots, and has a female face at the top of it. Thus, lotus symbolises the feminine power or the female sexuality.
     - Motifs of flowers, fishes, and snakes are drawn around the mandalas to depict the pond life which represent abundance and procreation. 
     - Bamboo plant is another inherent element of Kohbar denoting male sexuality and the husband's patrilineal line.
     - The Sun and The Moon are very important part of Mithila culture and thus they are drawn in the Kohbar art also to invoke their blessings as the newly married couple start their new life together.
     - Elephant motif in Madhubani art represent a large and prosperous family life.
