This is a chiku kolam from my mom's collection of designs. I had borrowed her notebook of kolams a few years ago, when I had started this site. This design is also for a member of this site (Mr/Ms ilavenil), who had asked about how to get started in making this chiku kolam (http://www.ikolam.com/node/5947)
