The art of Mehndi or henna has been practiced for over 5000 years and originated in ancient India. Its beauty transcended cultural borders. The patterns are symbolic representations of the outer and inner sun, and centred on the idea of “awakening the inner light”.
In this design, the symbolism of light and sun within henna patterns is captured in the soft curves of the arcs. Further, the suspended droplets conjure images of velvet tassels or a beautiful chandelier, quietly suggesting a regal affair.
