About Bandana Kumari

Incredibly talented artist Bandana Kumari, taking a cue from Bihar's popular Madhubani folk art, decided to make the eagle a metaphor for a powerful woman, because she aspired to see a woman on the highest level of the societal hierarchy. She imbues the body with the motifs of flowers, moon and butterflies to express the gentleness and compassion within her. Male characters painted with the lion/animal head are depicted with rain, animals, and clouds that represent the masculinity, love and compassion of a male.
