Dots as mentioned by Pushpalatha:
This kolam is from a temple of la Reunion, sent to us by Madam Florence Callandre who is a teacher in reunion island university in France. She has sent us this image of a conches kolam, which was chosen for the cultural week of that university. Her students chose to make that kolam with conches because the topic for the occasion was "music".
