A national award winner, the late Chano Devi initiated the Mithila or Madhubani Godna style of painting that was inspired by tattoos, a style adopted by a large number of Dalit women. Godna is the tattoo art tradition, inspired by body painting that is mainly made by Dalit (lowest caste in the traditional Indian caste system) artists, as they were not allowed to symbolize deities. Mainly using black paint, the paintings reflect primitive art by creating replications of the same image. Previously, the artists found inspiration from flora and fauna but now they do illustrations on Hindu epics and mythologies. Influenced by the higher caste Mithila painters, the Dalit artists now also user a wider colour palette. This style is easily recognizable by its sepia background that is attained through applying cow dung diluted water on paper.
