Description

Because it grows up out of the mud to blossom unsullied, the lotus is considered a symbol of rebirth and purity in Asia. The plant is revered in many traditions, including Hinduism and Buddhism. The lotus blossoms on our graceful watch were adapted from Lotus and Kingfisher, a Chinese hanging scroll in the Metropolitan Museums collection. In Chinese art, the lotus is often paired with the kingfisher, a combination that is associated with the summer season.
