This image is that of a Rangoli.

“Dream BIG, sparkle MORE, shine BRIGHT”

Rangoli is a popular Indian art form in which a pattern is made on the floor, commonly outside homes, usually with finely ground rice powder and colours. Sometimes flower petals are also used to make these decorative patterns”. Definitions from Oxford languages

Rangoli is a part of Indian Culture. Rangoli is a welcome sign for the guests.

Rangolis are a regular sight during festivals/rituals, welcoming the Gods for health and wealth.

The majority of Women In India excel the Rangoli Art.

Divine Light

“This is God’s universe and he is the master gardener of all. If we were to eliminate all colors in his garden,then what would be a rainbow with only one color? Or a garden with only one kind of flower? Why would the Creator create a vast assortment of plants, ethnicities, and animals, if only one beast or seed is to dominate all of existence?” Suzy Kassem

Images of God are an essential part of Hindu religious festivals. Large images of Deity, studded with a series of lights glowing with different bright colors are common and shine brightly during the night time.

How these Images with colorful lights made?

The picture of the Deity is sketched out in chalk on the ground, and bamboo is cut to form the frame accordingly. Now serial lights are placed along the outline of the picture and in the majority of the cases, electricians and artists join together to give a Divine appearance.

Thank you.
