Mehendi is one of my favorite things. The design and color are attract me a lot. Mehendi, also known as Henna, is made by crushing dried leaves of the plant Lawsonia Inermis. It is a decorative art that is applied as a part of daily life, festive occasions and weddings. The bridal mehendi designs are typically inspired by Mughal paintings or Ras Leela (Lord Krishna’s flirtations with his girlfriend, Radha and her friends) mixed in with motifs of paisley, flowers, elephants and peacocks. Drawings of a bride and groom or the bridal procession are common as well.
