Flower Rangoli..beautiful art

Rangoli is a popular art form in India. Rangolis are painted on the ground in front of houses using rice powder, sometimes supplemented by flower petals and other colorful materials.
The term rangoli is derived from the words rang (colour) and aavalli ('coloured creepers' or 'row of colours').
It is an art of making attractive, innovative designs on the entrance of the house - as a symbol of welcoming guest. Rangolis can be seen during marriages and festivals.
This beautiful Rangoli was made at the entrance of the flower show I recently visited and had been done using Marigold, Rose and Chrysanthemum petals and I think Mango leaves.
