Used a chord-texture and tan color for the stroke. This is a 9 - 1 dot kolam.
We would like to wish all our members a very happy festival season. With the winter only couple of weeks away, we are eagerly waiting for the margazhi season to begin! We hope you will share your rangoli/kolam creations with us throughout this auspicious season culminating with the Pongal festival.

This rangoli is based on a 6x6 dot grid. I have made use of the horn-shaped wicker basket called cornucopia to make this rangoli. These baskets are filled with various kinds of vegetables and fruits harvested in the fall season, in North America. The cornucopia is also known as the Horn of Plenty, or the Harvest cone, and is a symbol of abundance.
Here is a rangoli made of "gold", and the basic motif was borrowed from another basic pattern; http://www.ikolam.com/node/255
Sometimes, all that glisters is gold!
I was in need of new coasters a few months back, and I think this is exactly what I had in mind
Have a happy and safe Halloween!
Sometimes I'm right, and I can be wrong too.
Wishing everyone a very happy and safe Diwali!
