sona square in a sona square

jkmrao's picture

Here is a sona square in a sona square. The inner square is made up of 5x2 sona patterns and the outer square is made up of 11x3 sona patterns. These two are connected in such a way that maximum symmetry results. The voids are appropriately decorated. Enjoy!

I like everything in this design. The warm glow just takes you to a serene and calm place - like a village. Smile
I'm reminded of lighting oil lamps in my grandma's thinnai - maadam. I don't know what to call a maadam in english and would definitely come back to this page to translate it when I find out anything. Smile

Thinnai - is a tamil word for the front yard with seating available on both sides, usually.
And Maadam is more like a built-in-shelf in the wall (in the thinnai) to place the oil lamp in the evenings.

Thanks everybody, I am grateful for your comments. I am still not satisfied with this. I spent a long time over the centre. The central square and the lamp inside are fine. I am still not that happy with the four little lamps surrounding it. I tried concentric squares, but was not pleased. After several unsuccessful trials, I left it as it is. This is a new concept. Of course, concepts are quite easy to come by, but their execution takes considerable time. In a pattern like this, the weaving part is the one that takes real time, lots of it. I want to try three sonas, but that means a 23x23 pattern (this is 17x17). Lot of work, let us see. latAjI, I think you're looking for the word niche, am I right?
