Artist's Description

The white water lotus on the river bed at Old Woman Creek in Huron, Ohio, original photograph digitally altered and transformed. Also available in a more natural green.

The Water Lotus or Nelumbo nucifera is known by many names: Indian lotus, sacred lotus, bean of India and simply, lotus. These plants are often confused with the water lily, an entirely different plant. The water lotus has a distinctive center which will become the familiar circular seed pod lotuses are famous for. This aquatic perennial will remain viable for many years in the most favorable circumstances. The oldest recorded lotus germination was from 1300 year old seeds recovered from a dry lakebed in China. If you have the opportunity to see a water lotus in its natural setting I highly recommend you do so. A riverbed full of these is a magnificent sight.
