Rangoli is an art form in which patterns are created on a floor or on a table- top using materials such as powered lime stone, red ochre, dry rice flour, colored quartz power, flower petals, and colored rocks. The art form originated in the twelfth century on the Indian subcontinent.
A rangoli creation represents happiness, positivity, and liveliness of a household. It is intended to welcome Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and good luck. It is believed that a Hindu household without a clean entrance and a rangoli are an abode of daridra (bad luck).
