Reusable Rangoli-8

Here is one more design with kundans. As usual I have glued it to thick light blue coloured plastic sheet. 

These designs have been inspired by Nela Muggulu or the designs which we specifically draw during the Dhanurmaasam-that the month before our festival Sankranti. During this period, we pray to Sun God, Lord Vishnu and also it is like a thanks giving to Sun God and Dhanya Lakshmi (Goddess of Grains or agriculture) as farmers get their crop. That is why the Rangoli designs have the symbols of paddy ears, vegetables etc. Sankranti Rangolis I am dealing with in other posts.

The one below was done by my niece.

Hope you like them.
