18 Floor-based art creates an illusion

A pattern created on the floor by joining starson a common background provides an illusion. Take your time getting used to it! It is the right way up.

17 Image from Mystic India- Another Rangoli

This picture is taken from the Mystic India site mentioned earlier. Note the detail of rangoli patterns being out together by the women. They have to work on the floor for long hours possibly to complete the work in one day. Also try to assess the size of the rangoli by comparing the pattern with the people or the building in the background. Make sure that you visit the original Mystic India site
