Alpona – A Traditional Floor Decoration of Eastern India

Alpona is a traditional  floor decoration of eastern India.  It is drawn  on the floor with a watery wet rice paste which gives a bright white colour in contrast to the dark floors when dried. A rag held in between fingers is used as brush to hold the colour and make the designs. This zen tangle is inspired by this form of art.
