Updated – Kundan Rangoli Designs
Ms. Madhuri sent me the images of many Kundan Ragoli designs created by her Mother. Ms. Madhuri, please convey to your mother that these designs are just awesome. How talented your mother is.
Kundan Rangoli was completely new to me. When Mr. Madhukar shared with me the pictures for Sree Vara MahaLakshmi Pooje, the rangolis surprised me. I asked Mr. Madhukar to send me more details about the same.
Mr. Madhukar writes as follows:
The “Kundan Rangoli” is art work using coloured plastic pieces pasted on OHP sheets. These are now a rave in Bangalore with footpath vendors popping up during festivals selling pieces from Rs. 50 – thousands – depending on size and design.
The ones pictured were ‘created’ by my mother Savithramma – now aged 77 – who has always had an artistic craze – an exponent of the regular rangoli – colour fillings – hittina rangoli etc. now that she cannot bend due to knee problems has ‘migrated’ to Kundan rangolis :)
Varamahalaxmi festival always used to be a much sought of festival in our neighbourhood in Mysore (Chamarajapuram) – mainly because of the 1 1/2 to 2 ft Square Colour rangolis that she would display. She had the co-operation is this aspect by my grand father, grandmother, father, aunt and of course my elder brother and myself.
Attached below are the various pictures sent.
Thanks so much. Mr.Madhukar, And please convey my Namaskaras to your Mother. She is a great artist.
I will definitely buy these during my visit to Bangalore, hurray yes, coming soon to Bangalore in a few weeks. :)
P.S: If you are familiar with this kind of Rangoli and have been drawing them, send me the designs. I will post it here.
