Flower Rangoli

Hi everyone, hope having great day today. I have come up with Rangoli design.

First let me ask you that did you know Rangoli is  also known as Kolam in southern India. It is art from India in which patterns are created on the floor using materials such as  rice powder, colored sand or flower petals. It is usually made during Diwali, Onam, Pongal and other Indian festivals. They are meant for sacred welcoming. The purpose of rangoli is decoration. Generally,  rangoli are made during occasions such as festivals, marriage celebrations and other functions. Rangoli designs can be simple geometric shapes, flower and petal shapes.  Materials included are colored sand, red brick powder and even flowers and petals, as in the case of flower rangolis.

 Rangoli which I made in my office using different flowers. I have first drawn the design on floor and later on we filled it flowers. Before filling it with flowers we have to remove every petals from flower. From center we started filling the flowers. In center I have drawn diya because at that time Diwali festival was going on. Green color used is leaves and kept white flower for background. It looked great and even we won prize for it.

Thank you for stopping by my site
