Each day this week, I’ll be posting about a few symbols I incorporated into henna designs and my sankalpa (intention/purpose) behind them. This is a shot of a hand design done for a traveling bridesmaid encountering a professional opportunity. The fingers includes lots of seeds (growth) and the repetitive pattern symbolizes continuity and growth. The leaves/vines here are also placed to convey growth and thriving.
