More Around Japan

Kamakura, originally uploaded by artofspadazzle.

I never knew lily pads grew up and out of the water. Interesting. Photo was taken in Kamakura

Those are lotus plants. Japanese and Chinese love lotus flowers; they symbolize purity and integrity.
I did a silk painting of a lotus pool inspired by a park in China and a Tang dynasty poem my brother helped me to translate, and one inspired by a story the Butterfly Lovers.
