If you happen to walk past a Hindu home during Deepavali or other special occasions, you will notice that each doorway boasts a beautiful, vividly-coloured picture created out of flour, rice or flower petals, known as ‘rangoli’ or ‘kolam’. In different parts of India, these artworks are said to usher deities into the home, so that they can bless the household for the year ahead.
The Rhythms Aesthetic Society is a non-profit organisation that aims to spread the knowledge of Indian fine arts to people living in Singapore, and organises activities such as Rangoli workshops. Watch the video to learn more about this beautiful Indian art form!
Happy Deepavali to everyone! Share your well-wishes in the comments below.
