Abstract:

There is a living tradition in the art field of Bihar that is called Madhubani painting which enlightened about the social structure as well as cultural identity of Bihar and the styles of painting has been changing from generation to generation. Design is the creation of a plan or convention for the construction of an object, system or measurable human interaction. Taking inspiration from Madhubani paintings the present study was conducted on adaptation of Madhubani motifs for development of innovative designs. 120 traditional Madhubani motifs were collected from secondary sources like books, journals, magazine and internet etc. The identified motifs were sketched manually and scanned from books, magazines etc. which were recreated and modified in CorelDRAW X5 and Adobe Photoshop softwares to get the required complexity and elegance. The selected motifs were categorized in four categories viz. floral & foliage, geometrical, animal & bird and religious motifs and four top preferred motifs from each category were selected for development of designs. Total thirty designs were prepared using selected sixteen motifs and five top preferred designs were selected for varied application. The sixteen motifs selected for design development were motif number 8, 11, 29 and 30 in floral & foliage motifs, motif number 2, 8, 15 and 26 in geometrical motifs category, motif number 1, 18, 19 and 26 in animal and bird motifs category and motif number 2, 13, 28 and 30 in religious motifs category. The five top preferred designs were design number 14 (WMS 2.69), 20 (WMS 2.65), 22 (WMS 2.44), 23 (WMS 2.33) and 29 (WMS 2.60).
