Crosses and candles christmas rangoli with poinsettia

Lata's picture

During Christmas, people decorate their homes and places of worship (be it an altar at home or church) with strikingly beautiful patterns of kolams.

The following Christmas kolam is a symmetrical design which consists of four crosses and four candles with a touch of poinsettia in the middle. It is mostly made with lines and a few simple loops.

The grid of dots for this kolam has the following number of dots: the horizontal middle chunk has 4 rows of 18 dots each. There are 2 parallel rows above that middle chunk which have 8 dots each, and that is topped with 5 parallel rows of 4 dots each. There are 2 parallel rows below the middle chunk which have 8 dots each, and that is followed by 5 parallel rows of 4 dots each (one row below the other).

This design looks very beautiful when colored with the traditional bright colors of Christmas like red, green and gold.
Please click on the blue arrow located at the bottom of the dot grid, to view the animation.
