This is a cross drawn with two independent lines. The overall symmetry is a two-fold axis (189 deg rotation in the vertical direction in the plane of the pattern). Enjoy!

Rangoli: A svAstika pattern

This is a pattern that is made with both clockwise and anticlockwise svAstika patterns. Enjoy! Regards! - mOhana

Rangoli: Twelve-sided hridayakamalam

Normally, hridayakamalam rangOlis will have eight lobes. Here is a twelve-sided hridayakamalam. In the centre is a lotus I made long ago, again with similar symmetry. This creation is an off-shoot of the dodecagon stellation I made for the new year. Enjoy!

Rangoli: A rangOli with dots in seven rows and nine columns

Dots - Seven rows and nine columns rectangular
Basic motif - 3x4 single line sOnA pattern, four of these are repeated
Number of lines - three

This will be suitable for a slab or manTapam. Enjoy!

Rangoli: A rangOli with 1 to 15 dots or 8x8 dots - 6

Grid - 8 x 8 dots or 1 to 15 to 1
No of lines - 2
Symmetry - 2 (180 deg rotation)
Basic motif - a 3x4 sOnA pattern with 90, 180, 270 deg rotated copies
This is also a type of sOnA square with a different type of connection.

Enjoy! Regards - mOhana

Rangoli: 4x4 squared

After a while, I found some time to create a new pattern. This is a 4x4 pattern that is further squared. At the centre is placed the starting motif rotated by 45 deg.
Number of lines - 6
Number of colours - 3
Symmetry - 422 (90 deg rotn about the vertical and four 180 rotns in the plane)

Enjoy! Regards! - mOhana

Rangoli: hRdayakamalam with OM

Here is a hridayakamalam with OM. For clarity two different colours are shown. I worked on this for quite some time to get it to this shape even if it is not perfect still. Enjoy!

Rangoli: Roof to My God's Temple - 15

Right middle - A hexagon is chosen.
Right top - One of the sides (bottom) is removed from the hexagon.
Right bottom - The incomplete hexagon is rotated by 150 deg and joined to the earlier one. After twelve such rotations (12 x 150 = 1800 = 5 x 360) we come back to the original. This, after colouring, is shown.

Left top - Six of the bottom right are assembled to give the pattern with the 6-fold symmetry (6mm).

Left bottom - Four of these are assembled to give the pattern with the 4-fold symmetry (4mm).

Note how we get four-fold and six-fold symmetries with the same starting motifs. That is because we have a 12-fold symmetry (without colour) in the original pattern.

Enjoy! Regards - mOhana
