Painting Description: The Chinese word for lotus is a homonym of the word for harmony, and people often use it to decorate their homes during the Spring Festival. The lotus flower blossom above the surface of stagnant water in the murky depths of ponds and lakes. One can almost imagine it is a beautiful young woman or fairy rising out of the water. The ancient Chinese revered the lotus as a symbol of purity and elegance, so they compared lotus to noble gentlemen. It also symbolizes beautiful love. The lotus root of the lotus represents the inseparable love in couples. A lotus flower is considered the symbol of purity in China, because it grows in muddy water but remains unsullied; it is delicate and beautiful without being fussy. The lotus blossom represents the nobility of flowers because of its cultural significance.
