It is customary for Indian women to draw decorated feet of Laxmi – The Godess of weath, approaching her door bringing in good fortune for her devote family.Most of the Rangoli designs are flowers, leaves such as coconut, lotus, the animals such as cows, elephants and the birds like swans. There are geometrical pattern as well. We can also make rangoli by dot pattern or by free hand pattern.
