Rangoli is an ancient Indian art form. Traditionally, patterns are created on floors and entryways using coloured sand, flowers or rice and are thought to bring good luck. Designs can be passed down generation to generation through the women of the family. Rangoli are created for special events such as Hindu festivals and can be wall art as well as floor art. The term rangoli is derived from words rang (colour) and aavalli (‘coloured creepers’ or ‘row of colours’).
