To continue; these coloured kolam, or rangoli, is not for everyday, but for celebrations (let's celebrate Monday!). Same grid of dots behind as the white.
Photos from Auroville, a huge alternative community in Southeast India, some years ago when I still hadn't got a digital camera. I have boxes and drawers full of slides I can't really use. Last week I ordered a scanner, think it will mean a deep dive into memories. My guess is you will see a few old pictures, too.
Tamil culture Tamilnation.org, tutorial and links for kolam knowledge.
Pongal celebration kolams.
On You Tube I found a few kolam videos
Kolam based tiles
Now I'm off to the studio, finally a full day. Hope your Monday is fine!
PS masala chai posts lovely Indian craft today
