About this book

An auspicious flower in Asia, the lotus symbolizes purity, beauty and nobility. At the rustic level, it stands for abundance, fertility and continuity. It has been a favourite art motif for three millennia in China and India. The different faces and phases of the lotus are explored in over 200 photographs within Lotus. Chinese poems that mention the lotus and calligraphic rendition of some poems are included to enrich the presentation.
