Rangoli Gallery

In maths, Rangoli patterns are a creative way to discover symmetry, reflection and tessellation.

A Rangoli is a colourful design made on the floor using coloured rice powder. It is often used by Hindus throughout Diwali. Another form of Rangoli pattern is Mendhi which is used to decorate hands and feet during festivals and weddings.
