Rangoli-A nature inspired art form
According to Anita Wagh, Rangoli Expert from Gurgaon, Rangoli designs are made with natural materials to usher in an auspicious occasion. In the North of India colourful rangolis welcome festivals-religious, cultural and special occasions. In the South,
Rangoli making or Kolam is an art of meditation, performed daily by many.
Participating in a rangoli workshop by Anita, I got in touch with the many rangoli designs which I had documented. It also got me in touch with how nature also makes new innovative designs when seasons change. Here is a slide show I created with some
of the photographs.
