A traditional Indian rangoli i made this year on Diwali.
Great work! But I cannot help but wonder, how long did it last? I mean, this is bound to be very instable, a gust of wind or someone misstepping could ruin it, or not?

it is meant to last a day or two, since it is for religious purposes. yes someone or the other does step on it but i keep extra colour so i put over it again. it doesn't take time. and this is a regular size rangoli, people make much larger ones too in there community.
