Rangoli demonstration

Rangoli art demonstration at The Art Gallery of New South Wales.

Mala Metha and Sadhna Risbud are creating in this weekend the Rangoli as part of program for exhibition Garden & Cosmos. Rangoli, one of the popular art forms in India is an expressio of warm hospitality using traditional patterns and symbols made from highly coloured powder. It is a form of sandpainting decoration and is commonly done outside homes in India.

As with Hindu and Buddist Mandalas, the use of powder or sand as a medium for creating fragile Rangoli is sometimes thoutht to be a methaphore for the impermanence of life.
