The lotus flower symbolizes rising from the dank dark into light, beauty and rebirth.
This is how a lotus flower grows.
I have not used the flower to produce these artworks. Instead, the stalk is used as an stamp creating these designs. Each lotus “stamp” can be used about 30-130 times before a need to be recut. The depth of the shade depends on the quantity of ink on the stamp and the length of time it is held on the paper. Some lotus art designs start as a dot-to-dot drawing while others commence as a pencil sketch inked in with the stamp.
Every art peace is individual.
