Description

Toddy-palms dot the countryside in rural Bihar, and skilled specialized climbers scale these tall trees with very little to hold them, carrying knives and small vessels in order to collect sap for preparing liquor. This painting, drawing on the artist's observations of their activities in Maithil villages, shows three prominent toddy palms, heavy with fruit, with numerous birds perched on them, fine line-work accentuating their leaves, and men wrapped around their tapering trunks. The womenfolk wait below to assist. (Detailed write-up on theme and artist will be received by buyer)
