This poster shows a traditional way to welcome visitors and family - and the goddess Lakshmi of good fortune - into the home at Diwali. It shows a pretty rangoli design on the floor and an arrangement of lit diya oil lamps.
These lovely photographic posters show a variety of styles and designs of rangoli - including rangoli made with flower petals, a rangoli in the shape of Ganesha, traditional chalk powder rangoli and even a rangoli made with dessicated coconut. They make a super display and might be a good starting point for your own rangoli crafts this Diwali.
This lovely rangoli is made out of beautiful flower petals in vibrant, jewel colours. What a beautiful way to welcome Lakshmi into the home at Diwali, or bring pleasure to your visitors any time.
This is just one of a series of photographic posters of beautiful rangoli designs. This one is a traditional circular, radiating design made of colourful flower petals. Imagine how lovely it must smell!
Not all rangoli are in simple rounded shapes. This one is a striking rangoli design in the shape of Ganesh or Ganesha, the elephant god. It is made of traditional rangoli powders in pretty, striking colours.
This rangoli is a simple but striking design. The white elements of the design are made with dessicated coconut, which just shows what a little creativity can do!
This rangoli design has been layed out and outlined with traditional white rangoli powder, filled with coloured powders - in some areas piled high for texture. In the centre sits a beautiful oil lamp, ready to be lit.
