Tikuli is a type of hand painting and its history spread over 800 years. The painting with its modern evolution and varied manifestations finds its origin in Patna, Bihar.  Tikuli is the term that is locally used for bindis, which are colourful dots that women wear as accessories between their eyebrows. The bindi has been a symbol of the intellectual capacity of the feminine for time immemorial. In contemporary Bihar, it serves as a symbol of empowerment for women.
