Description from artist regarding their vision of Peace: From ancient times the lotus has been a divine symbol for Enlightenment. The seed starts out in the mud at the bottom of a pond and keeps growing towards the light. Its unfolding petals suggest the expansion of the soul. By the time it blooms it is pure, clean and perfect. I believe that Peace is the result of growth and enlightenment.
"As a lotus flower is born in water, grows in water and rises out of water to stand above it unsoiled, so I, born in the world, raised in the world having overcome the world, live unsoiled by the world" ~ Buddha
