ABOUT THE LOTUS FLOWER
The lotus flower is a flower that the ancient Egyptians came to respect and value in their culture. It had positive associations such as protection, healing and, most importantly, creation and rebirth. Lotus flowers are depicted in ancient Egyptian art near the noses of pharaohs. Pharaohs would take in their special scent, which they believed would lead to protection or restoration.
They used loads of terrific art techniques here as well, from oil pastel resist to salt crystallization in the watercolours!
