    intriguing piece... im being brave but my perception is praising (kind of) the beauty of the symbolic birth of lotus (be it flower) loosely i think, where the white petals praise upwards, free breathing, where as the rest of us scurry around lost almost beast-like, untrustworthy and suffering... thats my understanding... maybe understanding is not required, just appreciating the form... im not that bright but i like to lay my version of how i see things thanks karen (Report) Reply
