In India when it comes to celebrations and festivals; every aspect of it is somewhere or the other related to the ritual art forms and the cultural traditions. The art of creating large pictures and abstract designs on the floor using coloured powders is celebrated in India as a ritual art form. This art of painting is commonly known as Rangoli. One such art of painting floors is the “Kalamezhuthu art” from Kerala, an art with a difference!!!
In Malayalam, the literal meaning of “kalam” is a picture and “ezhuthu” is the act of drawing. Kalamezhuthu is the unique Indian art form practised only in Kerala, prominently in South Kerala. It is also known as dhulee chithram or powder drawing. It is a harmonic blend of Aryan, Dravidian and tribal Indian traditions in association with scared grooves and tantric elements. Kalamezhuthu is essentially a temple art. The patterns to be drawn and the colours are traditionally stipulated, and the tradition is strictly adhered to. As an art form it has found a significant place among our rich spectrum of fine arts. Kalamezhuthu is a forty day ritualistic festival beginning with the first of Vrishchikam (Scorpio) in most Bhagavathy temples in Kerala.
