Welcome to "Holiday Features" where I will be focusing on certain holidays and the amazingly fabulous art that goes with it. This time it will be Holi.
So here is a little about Holi before we begin. Holi, which is also called the "Festival of Colo(u)rs". It is observed in India, Nepal, Srilanka, and countries with large Hindu diaspora populations. Holi celebrated by people throwing colored powder and colored water at each other. The bonfires are lit in memory of the miraculous escape that young Prahlad accomplished when Demoness Holika, sister of Hiranyakashipu, carried him into the fire. Holika was burnt but Prahlad, a staunch devotee of god Vishnu, escaped without any injuries due to his unshakable devotion. Holika Dahan is referred to as Kama Dahanam in Andhra Pradesh.
