festive kolams


Around New Year is a season for of celebrations in all religions, and that shows in the more than usual colorful kolams in Tamil Nadu. To walk a village streets is a true craft exhibition.
Here are just a few to enjoy, before they are smudged by fotsteps over or swept away to make place for a new, next day.

Absolutely beautiful - and to think that kids made them! I've always loved the intense colors people use in art in India. Thanks for sharing these great pics!

Yes, it is as stunning every day, to pass by and see all the decorations on the ground! Women do them, I think the young girl I took a photo of is just practicing. All the best.
