Lost in Lotus

Inspired by Korean folk art which holds the simple lotus in the highest regard.

"A Yonhwa (lotus) grows in the mud but it is not tainted by it. It floats on water and does not sink. The strength of a yonhwa is powerful enough to withstand any difficulties that it may encounter. Its seeds emit a strong sense of willingness to exist and its roots extend continuously. A Yonhwa carries with it an outstanding capability of striking a balance between all of these factors that seem to go on and on."
