This kolam picture was sent to us by Mythreyi Varadarajan from Chennai, Anna nagar. And, since she had named her brightly colored kolam "Kanu", I'm guessing that she had made this kolam for Kanu pongal.
This beautiful flowers-kolam was sent by Vasundhara from India.
A rangoli of a beautiful pair of blue-green peacocks in full plumage is surely a feast for eyes!
This image of a pair-of-peacocks rangoli was sent by Kalaiarasi Kandasamy from Seremban, Malaysia. It was drawn especially for her wedding reception last year (in 2005).
These little christmas angels are adorable! Lay down the dots and draw an angel in all four directions. There are four angels and four christmas trees around a small symmetrical rangoli.

Undoubtedly one of the most beautiful birds in the world and a native of the Indian sub-continent, it is not surprising that the Peacock was anointed as the national bird of India in 1963.
Hailing from the pheasant family, these exotic birds are cherished for their colourful plumes and eggs. The peacocks, more appropriately called peafowls, (peacock refers to the male) are found in lowland forests and hills usually in small groups consisting of one male and several females.
The primary feathers and tail are of chestnut colour and the train is green with bronze and is covered with blue and green spots that appear to be eyes. They enjoy eating seeds, grains and young cobras.
