Opps..sorry this is a bit blurred

Some pictures of Kolam as I have previously mentioned. Kolam as defined in wikipedia, is a decorative design drawn in a variety of sandpainting using rice powder by female members of the family in front of their home.
It is sort of painted prayer -- a line drawing composed of curved loops, drawn around a grid pattern of dots. You can see this in the wikipedia. I will post another design similar to this tomorrow. It is just made up of white lines.
I like the vibrant colors. I think they are done with specific procedures, otherwise it will be difficult to get each tiny rice powder in line. In case some are stubborn :p
