Colour Block Kolam

Last Sunday I went to my brother-in-law's house and my niece's 3 yr old son was playing with his toys. He opened a box of colour blocks and wanted me to help him make the designs that were in the given catalogue. I made one design but then I suddenly was overcome with an urge to make my own design. Here is the collage of the before and after of the colour blocks. It was quite unfortunate that the number of different colours were insufficient for me to make a colour symmetric design - so I had to make do with the available numbers and colours to achieve this design which I hope you all like. Kalpu (who is a new member here) my brother-in-law's daughter-in-law said - 'Aunty you will make kolam designs with anything that is available' which explains how passionately in love I am with the art.

This is what Surya does in our house with her wooden puzzle pieces. I had uploaded some of her works which can be seen here:

Lovely temple kopuram style colourful kolam! Whereever ikolam members go, their inner thought will be about kolam only. It's proven here! Keep it up!
