An older piece that slipped away. The lotus is one of my favorite flowers along with the calla lily.
An interesting fact – An individual lotus can live for over a thousand years and has the rare ability to revive into activity after a period of being inactive. In 1994, a seed from a sacred lotus, dated at roughly 1,300 years old ± 270 years, was successfully germinated.
