Girl With Parrot Sun Henna Designs by Mehndi NYC

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 simple sun design on the hands and a parrot on the feet I did for a child. Suns symbolize many things. For this design, I focused on warmth, nourishment and growth as spring approached. Parrots symbolize love and inĀ  scriptural depictions, serve as messengers between the divine couple Sri-Sri Radha-Krishna.
