21 to 1 dots elephant rangoli for competition | 21 புள்ளி கோலம் 

One of the most common and popular rangoli with 21 dots ( ner pulli ).  It is drawn in our family for Sankranthi or Pedda Panduga as my mother used to say.

This rangoli is beautiful because , not just the elephants are drawn.  The caparison or the decorative cloth placed on the elephant's back and the howdah ( called the ambari in Tamil and also in Telugu ).

A canopied seat it is.  Details of the toes , the feet are drawn as if the elephant is walking.  Only one tusk is shown because it is the side view.  The elephants are drawn on all four sides of the dot grid leaving the centre.  Apart from these four dots remain on the four sides before the elephant ( enugu ).

These can be used to design a flower.

The dots that remain at the centre form a 7 by 7 square dot grid.  We can draw any of the 7 by 7 dots kolam we know  or we can create a new one also.  If we are drawing for New Year or Pongal we can add the  year "2018"  and design some patterns using the other dos
