Kolam designs with dots

Kolam designs typically use dots as the foundation. Start with the dots and then followed by the lines. Once done, optionally, the enclosed areas of the kolam may be filled with color rangoli powder.

Was feeling very bored last Friday afternoon, so was simply making small kolams indoor on my writing board. I was making 7 - 1 dots kolam from my collection (internet, my kolam note etc...). I have uploaded one set now. Will upload others later.. It may be useful for beginners.

Jaya Mam's Puzzle Kolam - by smahalakshmi - on 2012-07-09 10:02

Hi Friends, I know very well that all of you will start laughing once you see this kolam, since it is no where closer to the answer. I created this kolam before Jaya mam gave us the clue saying that 24 saplings represents 24 dots. I couldn't do that and was in a dilemma whether to upload this kolam or not. As this puzzle was dedicated to Rajamma mam, then I decided to upload this kolam, since I didn't want to disappoint Rajamma mam as usual. She feels disappointed if we do not participate in the puzzles given by her. But I'm not that much intelligent to solve those puzzles. Now I uploaded thi kolam in order to show her that I have done some homework but couldn't arrive at the correct answer. The basic logic itself is not correct. As per Jaya mam it has to be a dotted kolam but I have done it as a free hand padi kolam. Let me know your feedback.

When we were young we, sisters while wlaking on the road if we see a nice chikku kolam, we used to take the available bit of paper piece and one will draw the one side and other one will copy the other side of the kolam in a hurry and come home. After that, with the bit and pieces copied we will arrive at the full kolam. I remembered that and created this excercise.
