Rangoli: Flower with six petals!
Created by jkmrao on 2009-02-20,

Normally flowers have only five petals. This has something to do with growth
and related to the hEmachandra-Fibonacci series I spoke about recently. But
thogh rare, there are a few six petalled flowers. One such flower is a sparkling
blue flower
. Two arrangements with it are shown. Find the difference between
the two, if possible. When we draw rangOlis with dots, the symmetry is perfect
if the dots are placed properly. But in nature, even if there is six-fold
symmetry it is only approximate and any arrangement with such a flower is also
approximate. That is why the contacts in these pictures are not perfect. The
search for perfection is always through symmetry. That is why the artists in
Islam used symmetric patterns in their mosques to search for the perfect.
