Artist's Description

This is a black and white image with a hint of colour. Great for you to add a special touch to your decore. An arum lily is said to represent magnificence and beauty, purity, holiness as well as faith. It is also a representation of sexuality. The legend goes that Zeus, the Roman God fathered Hercules with his association with a mortal women Alceme. He wanted his son to partake more of divinity and become mortal. So, he brought Hercules to Hera after drugging her to sleep. He placed baby Hercules at her breast and Hercules began nursing. When Hera got up from her sleep, she was shocked after seeing a baby nursing her. She flung the baby away from her. When doing so, some of her milk gushed across the heavens and formed the milky way. Some of the few drops fell on earth and these drops sprang in the first lilies on earth.
So if you want to bring some mystery to your room add an image of cara lily’s commonly known as Arum liliys.
Robert Mapelthorpe was a famous photographer reknown for his contriversial work, but he also liked flowers especially lilys and I think this may have been for there sexual connotations. This image is done in the style of Robert Mapalthorpe.
