Rangoli: Palanquin
Created by Lata on 2010-08-13,

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

A dotted lamp kolam. Dot count: 7 at the center, leading upto two at both ends. Used my last batch of rangoli powder that I brought from India. I'll have to switch to making with rice paste or chalk in a few days.
