Weekly Photo Challenge: Harmony

Harmony
orig3

“Harmony: noun; An orderly or pleasing combination of elements in a whole: color harmony; the order and harmony of the universe”

The above definition of the word describes exactly what I feel every time I see the above picture.

For a long time now, I have been trying to figure out exactly why I am so affected, so drawn to the art of Rangoli, and why I can’t seem to have enough of looking at them…

I concluded that it must be symmetry that is inherent in almost every Rangoli that appeals to the aesthetic sense.

The theme for this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge has the perfect answer to my introspective query: Harmony

The colors, the lines and shapes (and the dots, if present) – all the elements blend in the most amazing way – in perfect harmony – to form a pleasing and consistent whole, to create beauty in a Rangoli.

The synonyms to Harmony are listed as: balance, symmetry, congruity, consonance, coordination, blending, correspondence, compatibility… is it any wonder that symmetry is there in the list?!

I would add another word to that list though: Beauty…

 

Let’s start simple…
