This is an oil painting on canvas of beautiful white Lotus flowers. The colours of the blue sky and clouds are reflected in the water of the pond creating a wonderful peaceful ambience. Layers of paint have slowly been added creating a very subtle and unique rich finish.
The Lotus flower in different cultures symbolises different things, however all share the core theme of beauty, eloquence and purity.
The flower is linked to Hinduism, Buddhism, and the ancient Egyptian’s religions...
The ancient Egyptians used the plant extensively as a symbol in their paintings and carvings and for them it represented rebirth. Hindu religious leaders used the flower as a symbol of peace and eternity. In Buddhism the Lotus also represents spiritual development and awareness.
The edges of the canvas are painted white so it is ready to hang without a frame if required...
