About Palanquin:

This is the palanquin kolam that I had mentioned, in my last "lamp" kolam. This uses 7 to 2 dots (parallel style). The palanquin handle is the only additional fixture drawn at the top, that is different in this design (when compared with the lamp version). This uses one stroke. I had also seen this design in the kolam book that Mr.Rao had uploaded a while back. There are 3 more that I had done, but do want to group here since this uses a 7 by 2 grid (and so chose to keep this separate). Palanquins remind me of brides and royal princesses, and that explains my choice of color for the base. Hope you enjoy this as much as I do. Smile

Treat week for us friends - Lata is treating us with so many lovely kolams. This one is really lovely except you should have used JKM's technique for weaving the kolam into the handle then it would have looked like the kolam is hanging from the handle Smile

Looping around the handle was my first option too, but that needs me to break up the loop and rework some more on both sides. So, I opted for a quick fix for now, whereas the animated version will have something else Smile

Lata, Did you allow Lakshmi to see the animated version as I couldn't find play button anywhere..

Thank you Vinci. No, this wasn't animated. I think Lakshmi just assumed. Smile
