This is a auspicious Rangoli which we draw in front of god during Naga Panchami Festival. This I learnt from my Grandma

A good attempt at showing this kolam with arrows. I like the top half. A good idea to use different colors to show the different lines. While trying to trace over the guidelines, I think I lost myself somewhere at the crossroads between the merging of green into the black lines. The picture lacks symmetry at the bottom. I would like to make this later, and I really hope I make the time for it. Thanks for the example, and the tutorial.

Good, but I am a pure map reader, still not clear to me.

Thanks friends for your nice comments. Now a days, I am trying to work on PC more time. When i feel more tired / free time during my work, I try some kolams to draw in PC. I am poor with dwgs. thas why it is not that much in symmetry. Also, my grand ma was telling while teaching this kolam to me that, whenever we draw a nagamandala/snake kolam, we should draw its eggs and small snakes nearer to it which gives the auspicious pray for god blessing whole of our family till generations. so i thought i should share this with u all.
Here, for this kolam, first follow red colour, 2nd blue colour, 3rd is green and finally you land up with Black.

Good idea of showing arrows for directions to follow - so I am sure this will be useful to many here on this website...
