This is a lotus kolam with an unique design. I like the design and tried to replicate the book version to some extend 🙂
The original kolam looks like the computer version which I have tried.
1.The dot pattern for the lotus kolam. This kolam has 19 dots in the main coloumn and decreases to 1 on either side.

2. The formation of the lotus shape is given below. Start with the bottom most dot and form a tear drop shape. And above to that add swirls connecting the dots around. Repeat the swirl shape on the other side too.
Draw a vertical line in the centre coloumn from bottom dot (0,0) to 6th dot(0,6) and then draw a horizontal line connecting 3 dots on either side. Now form the petal shape. Form the inner swirl from the second dot on the horizontal line and create a pattern as shown.
Then draw the centre swirls and the connecting lines as shown.

3. Repeat the design, the top design is just the mirror image of the lower design.
