This is a mango motif. I've used tessellation and tiling techniques for the filler designs.

Some more kitts, this time tesselated, for the kids.
Done in 1996. Regards! - mOhana

Rangoli: Amityville - Tesselation
Created by jkmrao on 2009-02-06,

As I mentioned earlier, after viewing Ms sumati's ramgOli
for the contest, I remembered this tesselation I made in
Dec 2002 for Christmas and new year. I am also mentioning
the verse of Khalil Gibran I quoted there -

I heard the teachings of Confucius;
I listened to Brahma's wisdom;
I sat by Buddha under the tree of Knowledge.
Yet here I am existing in ignorance and heresy.

I was on Sinai when Jehovah approached Moses;
I saw the Nazarene's miracles at the Jordan;
I was in Medina when Mohammed visited;
Yet here I am a prisoner of bewilderment.
I gathered wisdom from India,
I probed the antiquity of Arabia;
I heard all that can be heard.
Yet my heart is deaf and blind.
I was here from the moment of the Beginning
and here I am still.
And I shall remain until the end of the world,
for there is no Ending to my grief-stricken being.

Regards! - mOhana

Rangoli: Santa Tesselation
Created by jkmrao on 2008-12-23,

Since Christmas is fast approaching and children are
awaiting eagerly the arrival of Santa Claus with
many gifts, I thought I'll upload a Santa picture I drew
with hand in 1981 without any computer assistance.
This is a tesselation. That means the whole space
is packed without any gap with pictures. The most
famous pictures like this are drawn by Escher.
I have drawn several such pictures afterward.
But this is my first and I love it still!

Merry Christmas to you all!
