Why the Blue Lotus?
From the East
In the Kemetic folklore of our ancient Ancestors, Ra arose from the lotus petals of Mother Nun’s chaos bringing order and sunlight! The yellow center of the Blue Lotus Flower is symbolic of this sunlight; the blue petals can be likened to Nun’s midnight sky. As in similar lore, the rising of the sun is representative of resurrection. Ironically, the lotus flower blooms at sunrise and closes at sunset; thusly, the blue lotus flower is symbolic of resurrection and rebirth.
To the West
As above, so below. As in the East, so in the West. Both in the Caribbean Sea and in the Gulf of Mexico region, the land of many of our more recent Ancestors, the yellow lotus flower was revered and the plant was used as a food crop, and is still eaten today. In Louisiana, the seeds are called graine à voler (flying seeds) because they shoot out of their pods to remain loosely encased inside of them until the pods drop and the seeds fall into the water.
What’s in a Relic?
A relic is a venerated object associated with a saint or martyr, a souvenir or memento, a remnant left after decay, or a trace of a past or ancient custom or belief. This single word manages to encapsulate our true essence as artists and creatives who allow the pure energy of our pieces to dictate their design.
