Gentleman of Flowers
Details & Dimensions
Based on an original Qing Dynasty painting by Li Shan, this piece displays the symbolism of the lotus with a short poem that reads:
Although the lotus grown in muddy waters,
Still it grows straight, and one can smell its fragrance
Even from afar.
In ancient texts, the lotus is given the name "Gentleman of Flowers" and has become a metaphor for honesty and a noble character. The flower is symbolic of maintaining ones honor and purity, even when immersed in an atmosphere of filth and corruption.
