This is a favourite artwork of mine, it's an oil painting on canvas of a beautiful white Lotus flower. The darker colours of the pond contrast the brighter lotus flower creating a wonderful atmospheric ambience. Layers of paint have 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.
READY TO HANG: The edges of the canvas are painted white so this painting is ready to hang without framing if required.
