Watering Can with Maithili Hens

$ 70.00

This beautiful watering can is hand painted by the women of the Janakpur Women's Development Center in Nepal. The women first pick a traditional motif and then they paint the picture freehand based on the design selected.   In the Maithili culture, people give chickens as gifts to symbolize growing prosperity. The Maithili Hens and Chickens Design painting makes a great decoration for any room in your house and an excellent house warming present.

Each watering can comes with a removable spout.


 
"Our artists are empowered through tradition."- Manjula Devi of Janakpur Women’s Development Center, Nepal
