Artist's Description

© 2010 Chris Armytage, Fine Art Photography, Daylesford

These are for Lee, a wonderful artist and friend.

Iris is the Greek goddess for the Messenger of Love, her sacred flower is considered the symbol of communication and messages.
Greek men would often plant an iris on the graves of their beloved women as a tribute to the goddess Iris, whose duty it was to take the souls of women to the Elysian fields.
