屠妖节之Kolam 腾图 - Kolams of Deepavali




Kolam 是一种色彩斑斓的印度传统腾图。它由米浆或彩米勾画而成。

Kolam 多是由家里的女性成员,用手指在地上构成的几何图案。这腾图的用意是避免让邪恶进入家里,为家庭纳福祛灾,也带有欢迎访客到来之意。

Kolam is a painted prayers. It is drawn using rice flour paste or coloured rice by female members of the family at the entrance of the house. It is an invitation to welcome all into the house and also to prevent houses of devotees from devils and harm. Most of the kolams are in geomatric and mathematic lines and they are drawn with bare fingers.
