Description

In Buddhism the lotus is known to be associated with purity, spiritual awakening and faithfulness. The flower is considered pure as it is able to emerge from murky waters in the morning and be perfectly clean. Therefore in common with Egyptian mythology the lotus is seen as a sign of rebirth, but additionally it is associated with purity. The breaking of the surface every morning is also suggestive of desire, this leads to it being associated with spiritual enlightenment.

This stunning contrast of colours is sure to be a feast for your senses

Even more impressive in real life, It took many layers of paint over many sessions.

I hope it brings you good energy and positive feelings as it was such a joy to paint.
