Welcome kolam
Created by Lata on 2006-12-19,

This is one of the very first kolams that I animated and has been around for a few years. This could be used for New Year and/or as a Welcome Kolam.

A very simple kolam. Actually, this probably is the first kolam that kids would be taught when they begin to learn the art of kolam.

Diya kolam

Another simple diya kolam for this diwali. I had created a poster version of this kolam a while back while demonstrating kolam/rangoli in a local library.

Merry Christmas Poinsettia Rangoli
Created by Lata on 2005-12-19,

This Christmas kolam is an ideal design for your frontyard during the Christmas holidays. It not only beautifies and makes the outside of your home more colorful, but also wishes every passer-by a very "Merry Christmas"!
The grid of dots for this kolam has the following number of dots: the horizontal middle chunk has 4 rows of 16 dots each. Above that, there is a row of 12 dots, followed by 14, 12, 14, 8 and finally 4 dots (one above the other in the sequence given all the way in the UP direction). Now for the other directions: put the same number of dots as in the UP direction i.e 12, 14, 12, 14, 8 and finally 4 dots respectively one below the other row in the DOWN direction. You have to see the picture of dots to make the row of 8 dots (in both up and down directions) because they are irregular, but not difficult to follow. Similarly, you would've to be a bit creative while writing the letter Y in the word MERRY, because you're going to be left with 2 stray dots on either side at the bottom of the Y if you use the capital Y instead of y. Please see the animation to understand what I'm referring to. The flowers in this kolam could be colored red and green to make it look like Poinsettia (keeping the Christmas theme in mind). Dual colors are recommended for the candles. Please click on the blue arrow located at the bottom of the dot grid, to view the animation.
