love the shape of this flower and since I discovered its meaning,
even more. It appeared delicately in my final project, and in the
following months, a collection dedicated in its entirety to the lotus
flower emerged spontaneously.
as one of the oldest flowers in the world, the lotus flower is a
sacred element in many cultures, evoquing wiseness and serenity.
metaphor between the lotus flower and spiritual rebirth becomes
evident, once we know it. The lotus flower grows in marshy places, in
the mud, however the flower rises above the surface to flower high
up, fragrantly and with remarkable beauty. From darkness comes the
illumination of the spirit, just as the lotus flower emerges from a
dark and murky place,
peace seems to emerge from dark and confusing moments.
closed lotus flower or button is a symbol of the inifinite
possibilities of man, while the petals opening symbolise spiritual
has also been compared to the heart, and symbolises that everything
that is created has in its utmost interior, something comparable to
the lotus flower, developing.
