Kolam in the morning

There is a custom in Southern India, of women drawing figured on the ground to bless the home. They start by sweeping and cleaning the doorstep and then draw a figure. I was able to watch this a couple times. It was amazing! The shapes and creativity that they did was wonderful. Someone would come every morning and draw one on our doorstep as well. It is called Kolam. Check out the wiki article, it’s short.
