Rama is the protagonist in the Hindu epic poem, Ramayana, or "Romance of Rama." Originally written in Sanskrit, it tells the story of Rama, the seventh incarnation of the god Vishnu, who eventually wins the hand of Sita in marriage. Displaced as rightful heir to his father's throne, Rama goes into exile with Sita and his brother Lakshmana but, while in exile in the forest, Sita is abducted by Rahwana, the lust-driven ogre king. Aided by the monkey general Hanuman, Rama searches for Sita and slays Rahwana, rescuing his wife. After his success, he soon returns to his rightful place as king.
Working in the traditional Madhubani style, Devender Kumar Jha depicts people of the kingdom rejoicing as Rama returns triumphant to Ayodya. Elephants and cows join the victory celebrations. Originating in northern Bihar, Madhubani painting was once used to decorate the floors and walls of homes.
As each painting is an individual creation, each is unique. Colors and motifs may vary slightly from that pictured.
