Lotus plant with Tortoise by Dutch nature artist Paula Kuitenbrouwer. A tortoise surfaces from the pond to admire the flowering lotus plant.
Paula's ‘Lotus Pond with Tortoise’ shows the flowering plant, partly in water, and blooming just at the surface. A tortoise, resting on a rock, looks up at the lotus. Such a bright and beautiful flower is an inspiration to all who see it, tortoise as much as human.
In Asian culture, tortoises are sacred. The longevity and tenacity that they symbolize seemed to me to be a wonderful way to celebrate Asian teachings. We need to live long and work hard to reach enlightenment. The combining of the symbols of enlightenment with those of longevity expresses this enlightenment process.
