Guess this kolam

Hi Friends, I have done this padi kolam by referring to one of the uploads made by one of our well known member. Can anyone guess what is that kolam that I'm referring to? Hope this will not be too boring.

Triple S, eppadi pa, ippidi ellam answer panna ungaluku thonudhu. (How to get ideas to answer like this).

Ha ha ha, Rani neenga idhuku munnadi oru GG vechu, engaloda thookatha 2 days kedutheenga. Oru naal madhiyanam thookam pona onnum thappu illa. (Rani, u started one GG before and for 2 days u didn't allow us to sleep without revealing the answer. So it is not wrong in sacrificing one mid-day sleep).

I believe that there won't be any further guesses from other members. So I decided to reveal the answer - Here it goes......

It has been referred from Lata Kalaimani's gallery - "Celtic Rangoli for St.Patrick's day" - http://www.ikolam.com/node/11503?p=5851

Rani, Uma, Pushpa, SSS & Sowmya - Please don't throw away stones from there.

Thanks for your participation.

What to do Rani, I had no idea for the first couple of days, that it was my St.Patrick's day celtic knot pattern! :0
I mean this design is embellished so beautifully that it camouflages the base design really well. Smile

Maha, I didn't figure out even when you had emailed me before posting it here. It was only after the game had begun had I stated to pay close attention and found out. Even then I had to check back into a few files just to make sure. I must hand it to you Maha, you are one great trickster! :0 All in all a nice guessing game that all of us enjoyed.

A little bit about the basic celtic knot seen in my St.Patrick's day pattern. Usually I use Adobe Illustrator, or Photoshop to make such drawings, and this pattern unless animated would have only taken me about 30 minutes to make. But, I tried out a 3d package to make this pattern, and it was a difficult one to get the interwoven lines built out of cylinders (the only option in the 3d software). So, it ended up taking me 4 hours to complete that simple design. Smile

Lata, thanks a lot. Actually i was bit a afraid whether I have done full justice to your design. Yes Lata, making the outer layer interwoven designs is bit difficult. i don't know how Rani and Pushpa felt about it. But I have done too much practise and homework before making this final drawing. hats off to ur creativity.
