About Grace Gitadelila


‘When we arrive at Grace’s home, a bonfire was lit in the middle of the garden to celebrate the Harvest Festival.

Her spacious and orderly home seems to express her disciplined way of life.

“Kolam is my life’s work”, she says in her gentle tone, as she pours tea for us.’

We do not own the Kolam nor does it own us.


– Grace Gitadelila

The Kolam needs no special display to give it its broader Universal meaning. It is set down simply under the open sky, in front of a stone or tree, on a doorstep.

– Grace Gitadelila

The Hands and fingers are like antennas, or receptors to send and receive in acts of Giving.

– Grace Gitadelila

Making a Kolam requires the hand to rise and fall like a wave.

– Grace Gitadelila

The Kolam is in us and we are it, it is we, ephemeral and powerful.

– Grace Gitadelila

Within this journey through the images of Kolams you will be encouraged to meditate, to reflect, to become silent and merge into the dark light.

– Grace Gitadelila

The Kolam as a Ritual is an impulse towards reverence of the life force and self-identification with it.
