Kalighat paintings are known for their vibrant portrayal of everyday life and mythology, originating from the Kalighat area of Kolkata in the 19th century. The depiction of women adorned in colourful sarees and jewellery was a common theme in these paintings. 'Bibi's Playing Shidoor Khela' likely portrays women participating in Sindoor Khela, a traditional ritual during Durga Puja where married women smear each other with vermillion. These paintings captured the essence of Bengali culture and customs of the time, often with a touch of humour or social commentary. The use of bold colours and intricate detailing in both attire and jewellery makes these paintings visually striking and culturally significant.
