Item: A Lotus Dream (80cm x 60cm), Selling At USD$350. Oil Painting.

In the Chinese culture, Confucian scholar Zhou Dunyi wrote: "予独爱莲之出淤泥而不染."
("I love the lotus because while growing from mud, it is unstained."

The lotus represents purity of the body, speech, and mind as if floating above the muddy waters of attachment and desire and to me that symbolize freedom.

Personally, I like the lotus flower a lot. There was once I dream that I was on a little boat on a huge pond filled with beautiful lotus flower and it was very peaceful and calm. I hope this painting would give the owner the same effect I had in my dream, too.
