~Rangoli~

A rangoli is a form of Indian folk art that uses intricate or simple patterns and geometric shapes, often symbolic, to create a sacred welcoming area for Hindu deities, or simply as decoration believed to bring good luck. A rangoli is usually positioned in front of a dwelling or meeting place, but may also be located on the floor of a living room or in a public space during religious festivals, like Diwali.
