Madhubani painting, 'Durga' (India)

Originating in the Mithila region of India, Madhubani folk art is a style traditionally reserved for women, and celebrates themes of nature and Hinduism. Manni Devgun paints this intricate composition in the Madhubani style, depicting the Hindu goddess Durga. In her ten hands, Durga holds spiritual weapons, and her forehead features a symbol of peace.
