Hindu Holi-ness: the festival of colors
Holi, the Hindu festival of colors, is a celebration of the beginning of Spring observed in India. Celebrants splash each other with powdered colors and water like God, the divine artist, splashes the world with the amazing colors of Spring. This is an artist's way of celebrating the beginning of spring!
