About copycat design : PRINT

can you recall this design from the works of mOhanaji?
I tried this so many times with different medium, but failed to complete it properly. Finally used riversand mixed with color powder and drew this. Hope you like it.

Thank you all for the nice comments. I know that it is not that perfect as the original PC work. I put the dots first, then put small squars around each dot with the colored sand mixture (dry). then with finger tips pressed 4 corners of the square to make petals. Then with the help of match stick did the partition, like a cross to seperate the petals. Since it is difficult to spread the sand in a small area, I could only achieve this much. It took nearly 2 hours to complete.

I understand the difficulty in reproducing patterns on the floor. That is why I always salute the real rangOli heroes.

Thank you Sir. Though challenging, I am tempted to copy all your works on my granite floor. By the time I decide one you upload new new versions and selecting one among those takes time,.plus ground work ,rehearsals
delay the release. Moreover I do not want to get the name stamped as 'copycat' ( already the "beautician" title is offered by Lakshmiji).So I use your designs as 'OOrugai'for my pazhaya thayir saadham .( pickle for my old curd rice)
