Kuhu Kopariha recently wrote about Pushpa Kumari on the Sarmaya website.
About the image above, Pushpa explains;
“This painting showcases the ‘Garbha Chitra Aripana'. It is an aripana design drawn to commemorate a young girl approaching the age of puberty. drawn on the first day of menstruation in a girl's life, the day she begins to embody ‘Prakriti' itself.
