The study investigates the historical traditions of Maithili art in Northern India, and its connections to Tantric art.

The study investigates the historical traditions of Maithili art in Northern India, and its connections to Tantric art. Further investigation between the two art forms reveals critical connections between the two. These connections are then explored in the art practice of indigenous Maithili artist Ganga Devi and contemporary Tantric artist, Anita Ghei Malhotra, the researcher. This study could thus open up new avenues of inquiry in art history as well as art education, cultural studies, and indigenous studies. This type of research could further establish strong connections between indigenous ways of knowing and contemporary art education.
