Artist's Description

Garland
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

A garland is a decorative wreath or cord, used at festive occasions, which can be hung round a person’s neck, or on inanimate objects like Christmas trees. Originally garlands were made of flowers or leaves.

Garlands appear in numerous poems, including La Belle Dame sans Merci by John Keats.

In the Bible (English Standard Version), Proverbs 4:9 describes Wisdom as: “She will place on your head a graceful garland; she will bestow on you a beautiful crown.”

In the 1913 novel The Golden Road by Lucy M. Montgomery a “fading garland” is used as a metaphor for the evening of life or aging in general " Did she realize in a flash of prescience that there was no earthly future for our sweet Cecily? Not for her were to be the lengthening shadows or the fading garland. The end was to come while the rainbow still sparkled on her wine of life, ere a single petal had fallen from her rose of joy. " (Chapter XXX).

In the 1906 children’s book The Railway Children by Edith Nesbit, garland is used as a metaphor as well: “Let the garland of friendship be ever green.”
