Despite growing out of mud, the lotus bloom remains untainted. It floats on shimmering water but never dances with it.
In the Ode to the Lotus Flower by Zhou Dunyi, the lotus bloom is an emblem of purity and truth. The seeds in the Lotus seed head represent endless wealth. 5 frogs reside at the base of the lotus plant in harmony, indicating that living in harmony brings wealth.
This lotus plant has 3 blooms, inseparable from the leaves. Birds, dragonflies and frogs are full of life as they rest on the lotus.
