Margazhyi Kolams 2021-2022 , Day 2

A Padi kolam is drawn on all special occasions & on days like a friday too. Padi is a “step” in Tamil, so roughly it means a “step kolam”.
Basic padi kolams are drawn using four parallel lines which cross over at right angles & can be extended in straight or curvy lines & one can keep building it up . The centre is not left blank so a dot , a cross etc could be made in the centre.
More on padi kolams later .

Day 2: “A Padi kolam ” for a friday .
The basic square is further extended to depict the peacocks to enhance the look of the art pattern
