Rangoli is an art form in which patterns are created on the floor, often by the house entrance
Materials such as coloured rice, dry flour, coloured sand or flower petals are used
They are usually made during Diwali or other Hindu festivals. Rangolis are thought to bring good luck
The religious significance is that gods are attracted towards Rangoli designs therefore invited into the house
Rangoli designs can be simple geometric or flower and petal shapes. Sometimes Indian gods and important animals are included.
