Lotus flowers for love
Philip and Cat with Lotus Flowers
Oil on Canvas
50 x 75 cm
Lotus flowers symbolise many things, among them beauty, purity, clarity of heart and mind and, in relationships, love.
I was intending to place this couple on a big lotus flower, but that would have been out of character and a bit twee, so I placed them among lotus flowers instead.
I saw this display of lotus flowers in the wonderful Aboretum Ellerhoop-Thiensen, in Schleswig Holstein north of Hamburg several years ago. The lotus flowers were out when I visited and were a site to see. It is a wonderful place to visit, most definitely worth a detour.
