The Alpana or Alpona is derived from the Sanskrit word Alimpan, meaning colourful designs.
Bengali Alpana Designs are decorations that are done during festive and ceremonial occasions.
The designs of alpona are created on the floor with the rice-paste or with crushed colour in which case the alpana would be dry.
At wedding or social occasions, the alpanas contained motifs that evoke pure and auspicious thoughts.
