A state and nation awardee, the late Yamuna Devi was the first Dalit (lowest caste in the traditional Indian caste system) woman to gain recognition for her Madhubani (Mithila) painting style. She performed rituals and sang songs while painting and used Holi colours to paint, a tradition exclusively used by the Brahmins and the Kayashth (higher Indian castes) communities previously. Lokchitra is the deity and human painting style where inspiration is taken from the sacred texts of Hindu mythologies. The coloring scheme here is of two styles - Kachni (hatching) where a limited color palette is adopted to fill the painting with delicate fine lines and Bharni (shading) where solid colors are used to shade and fill in the image. Earlier, artists from the Brahmin and Kayashth class represented this style however, this distinction has now blurred and caste is no more a constraint for creativity.
