Thanks for sharing your mother's work with us.
Indeed her passion for kolams is well seen in the above picuture. A Big Main kolam decorated with chikku kolams on corners, I think the other two on the bottom and for the final touch with a long border chikku strand.
Convey my wishes to her.

Brindha thanks for the hint - wnen I saw this kolam I was wondering why it looked so familiar.. WOW - will I be in a position to put such wonderful kolams at the age of 73?? Excellent work by your mom Indu - hats off to her passion. I would love to have a closer look at those chikku kolams on top..

Thanks for your comments and appreciation. We all also wonder how she manages such lovely creations at this age. I do have a picture of it with all the 4 chikku kolams around. But I am not sure if it is ok to upload it again, since the main kolam is the same. Please advise. Thanks, - Indu

Very neat and beautiful kolams. Very neat presentation to. Convey our regards to your young mother. Lets all get inspired by her enthu. You can always give a closer look of the four corner sikku kolams. you crop(remove) the main kolam and attach only the corner sikku kolams. Four different kolams may be made as a collage.
