Ganesha for Diwali contest!
Here is a Rangoli of a side-lying Ganesha inspired by a Tanjore painting which I made for our Hindu Temple in Canton, Michigan. The temple celebrates Diwali by letting kids and adults make Rangolis inside the temple a week before Diwali, every year! That is the special importance Rangoli gets , here in Michigan! And its a beautiful sight to see little kids and adults create different rangolis with various mediums - rangoli powder, saboodhana, flowers,fruits etc. I am proud to say that this side lying Ganesha won the applaud and compliments of everyone there !
