Meaning of the pattern to me is simply an implementation of a style of painting called “Madhubani” originated in India several centuries ago. The significance of this style of painting one uses free hand single brush strokes in continuation without breaks while maintaining a symmetrical pattern .

In this depiction of two fishes while the physical shapes of the fishes are biologically alike, however within these fishes I have implemented the Madhubani Patterns as described above.

The special challenge in using the technique is using the method of not lifting your brush while completing each pattern and maintaining a symmetry. Also the color choices needed to be such that every detail is distinguishable

Rabindranath Tagore is my favorite Artist.
