Th telugu word for rangOli or kOlam is muggu. There is literary evidence for the decoration of households with muggu even in the 14th century. That is why I beg to disagree with a recent essay in American Scientit saying that these patterns originated in the 18th or the 19th century. Here is a pattern that is made of the word muggu ( ముగ్గు ). Enjoy!

muggu in telugu means rangOli. It is also called mruggu. But in modern
telugu, the r sound for words beginning with compound letters containing r
is omitted. The letter mu is given in green, the gu sound is given in blue.
The second g sound in muggu is called ottu and is given by the symbol below
gu in red. In the top two figures, they form a 3- and 4- petal flower-like
patterns. In the bottom two, the u sounds in gu form the blue S-like motif.
The top left pattern is a Sierpinski triangle that occurs in fractal geometry.
