Rangoli: Peace!

This is a simple 1 3 5 3 1 type of rangoli.
Where the E's meet, the illusion of a circle
like a halo persists to give a peaceful feeling,
at least that is what I belive.

I am not separately submitting the DEMON=>ANGEl.
It is quite clear. But this type of figure is
called an ambigram. In some cases, it is easy
and in this case it is hard and am not still
satisfied. Generally, I play like this for
wedding gifts with the bride's name in one way
and the groom's name in the other way. I am told
this type of ambigram is in DaVinci Code.

Rangoli: Love!

This is a bit complicated as I substituted a round
candle picture photographed vertically from above
for the letter o. Where the L's meet a beautiful
svAstika (anti-clockwise) is created.

Rangoli: JOY!
Created by jkmrao on 2009-01-05,

I experimented with various fonts and used a suitable one.
To create a wavelike feeling, I added the letter c to the
bottom of y and made j and y continuous. The four joys
meet at j. In principle I could have used a different
colour for o and make it look like a pearl or coral,
but didn't as new year's day was almost over!

Rangoli: Ladder of Hope!
Created by jkmrao on 2009-01-05,

This was done with the word HOPE and its mirror images.
Since the mirror image of H is itself, they were joined together
and the horizontal mirror images of H were overlaid in such
a way that the two lines of E and its mirror image coincide.
Then the H's form a ladder and on the right side, the E's
intercalate resulting in this pattern. The mirror image of
H was chosen deliberately, because hope sometimes is not
real, but only virtual. You cannot touch it. It is like
a dream! Enjoy!
