Painted by artist Kamlesh Kumar, this is a very special artwork. When viewed from far, it gives an impression of a full-blooomed flower. However on a closer look, you realize the flower petals are fishes drawn in a pattern such that they all are in a circular format facing towards the inside. In Madhubani art, fishes symbolizes prosperity, fertility and good luck. The yellow color was drawn from parts of Night Jasmine flower or Sringar flower. Sikkot flower gives the orange color for the painting. This artwork was completed over a period of 7-8 days.
