West Bengal Kantha, probably made in West Bengal, India, circa 1975-2000. A Hindu tradition for various celebrations is to make pictures on the ground using colored rice paste. In Bengal, these floor paintings are called alpana and have religious and ceremonial, as well as artistic, purposes. This kantha resembles the format and design of some alpanas. The center shape, a lotus flower mandala, symbolizes the spiritual core of the universe.
