Water lily symbolism

Water lilies are always used for representing emotions in various cultures. If white water lily is the National flower of Bengladesh, blue water lily presumes the same dignity of Srilanka. These flowers can be seen in ancient paintings that depict their spiritual and aesthetic value.
French impressionist Claude Monnet had painted a lot of water lilies in a series such as ‘the cloud’, ‘the setting sun’ and ‘reflections of clouds in a water lily pond’. All these paintings portray the settings of some objects of nature together with water lilies.
In Indian Tamil poetry, water lilies are the symbols of sunset and seashore. Separation of love in a seaside is also conveyed through a water lily.
