Rangoli: once again padikolam

Rajamma madam, I think this time I did it fifty percent.This kolam is in my mind for almost one month.

Rangoli: paDikOlam - 8

This has a central lotus, oval lines instead of straight lines, triangles on four sides, tendrils at four corners, a circular enclosure with flowers and lamps outside the circle. Comments welcome!

Rangoli: hexagonal paDikOlam

The paDikOlams I viewed here and elsewhere are all square only. Why not create one with hexagonal (six-fold) symmetry was the thought that occured to me. Here is the result.

Rangoli: Designer kolam with white/kaavi kolapodi

This was put for some function in a hurry, so u can locate some omissions and commissions. But this, my original design, I always put every now and then.

Rangoli: Podi/Padikolam

This is a simple padikolam.My daughter inlaw drew this in paper for me to put.She is good in drawing.

Unlike Lakshmiji, I am very kanjoos in using kolapodi.
I can draw thin lines but not thick lines.
If Lakshmi put her hand in this how it will look?
This was put in the frontyard of my old home last year.

Rangoli: paDi kOlam - 7

Most of the elements in this rangOli are from the toolkit! The only new ones are the flowers on all the four corners especially created for this and the central ashTadaLa padma. Regards! - mOhana

Rangoli: paDikOlam - 5

A simple paDi kOlam is displayed here. It has a central lotus with eight petals. You may find Sankha, chakra, gadA and padmA on the sides. The outer border has tulasi. As purandaradAsa says, hari will not accept worship without tulasI.
