WORKSHOP 6:

KOLAM – The Everyday Heritage

From womb to the tomb there exists a primordial connection to a force revered by various civilisations. Despite the physical severance of the umbilical cord at birth, there remains an unseen force that connects every being to the “Shakti” or power that is at the root of all life’s energy.
Janani interprets this continuing thread of association through Kolam. A floor art is done using rice flour, Kolam is a form of painted prayer practised only by women and girls in the Southern part of India.
A sacred geometry pervades all Indian art. This is true for Kolam that dates back thousands of years.
