Floral motifs are abundantly present in cultures all over the world and China makes no exception. Flowers in Chinese art are either used as a central piece, or incorporated in geometric designs where they become more abstract, serving the needs of the composition.
This week we present you a complex floral traditional Chinese pattern. One main element here is the lotus – the flower that rises clean and pure from the mud. In Buddhism it is associated with purity, faithfulness, and spiritual awakening.
One word for “lotus” in Chinese is a homophone for the word for “harmony”, and another – for “success”. In Chinese art this delicate bloom is also associated with female beauty and innocence.
The parts of the following design are provided separately to make horizontal stacking possible, and can be used separately or as one unified motif.
