Madhubani painting, 'Saraswati' (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 Saraswati. Posing atop a lotus blossom, Saraswati plays a stringed instrument to promote peace and harmony.
