Thank you all for your wonderful & inspiring comments

At first it was going to be a branch with flowers (the Diya pots for the flowers) but it looked like faintly like a peacock however I like the idea of Durga Maa. As its abstaract it can mean anything to the observer.
A netted cone is any cone about 4-6 inch height, about 1.5 inch wide at mouth (top) about 1 inch at bottom. You put a nett (curtain nett or embroidery nett) at the bottom. It acts like a seive. It's very easy to spread rangoli colours with this. You put about a spoonful of colour and tap gently while moving the cone on the area you want to put the colour. For shading its also easy to blend different colours on top of each other. The colour is layed evenly through this method. Om shanti
