The tradition of Rangoli attains different vernacular names in different parts of the country. In Andhra and Telangana, it goes by the name 'muggu', meaning patterns created on the floor using rice flour, coloured sand or flower petals. In this Kondapalli masterpiece, the artisan coaxes us to revel into the beauty of this traditional Indian ritual and that of the maiden who draws it. 'Muggu' adorns the front yard of the house after being treated with a coat of cow dung to obtain antiseptic properties.
