Godna paintings : The Mithila form practiced by the upper caste communities are slowly merging with the distinct styles, forms and colours of the lower caste Godna paintings. This form of painting evolved from the practice of Nattins, women in gypsy groups who tattooed the bodies of the very poor castes since they could not afford jewellery.

Godna is instantly recognizable for its cow dung based backgrounds and black outlined drawings, reimagining the original practice of tattooing.

Paper is a fairly new medium for Godna artists. The delicateness of their work remains and even improved on paper, and did not lose this quality of fine detailing even on a large mural.
