Our One Line Drawing Posters are inspired by the Picasso One Line Art Drawing Series. The immaculate lily has been connected with queenly divinities from the time of the Minoans, in Bronze Age Crete, where it represented the island’s reigning goddess.
The ancient Greece mythology said that it had arisen when Hera’s breast milk fell to earth during the creation of the Milky Way.
Its image is thus associated with rebirth and motherhood.
A lotus flower is a form of water lily. In China, it is also linked with feminine beauty, where an emperor of the Qi dynasty, astounded by the beauty of a concubine, exclaimed: “Wherever she steps, a lily springs up.”
Chinese weddings still use lily for decoration as they are tied to 100 years of love.
The white lily is one of the most highly praised flower symbols to Christianity. It’s a node to the Virgin Mary’s purity.
Its cup is particularly recognizable and has embodied manifestation, center, heart, or spiritual vessel from which is born the spirit within.
Highly regenerative, the lily surfaces even after fire or drought.
Alchemy esteemed the lily as evoking the very essence of Mercurius – the spirit of psyche’s unconscious depths and transforming opus. It represents psychic integrity that is no longer pulled apart by change.
The alchemical lily is incorruptible and eternal, the noblest emotions
that human meditation can reach. It represents psychic integrity that isn’t pulled apart by change – incorruptible and immortal.
