THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
Steeped deeply in a rich history of meaning, the purple irises found in the Irises Triptych Painting have been thought to serve as a link between heaven and Earth. In Green Mythology, they were said to have been planted on women's graves to invite the goddess Iris to guide each one to Heaven. Each of the unique irises pictured here all stand at different heights and petal rigidness, representing the individual journeys that each person takes towards their own spiritual beliefs and faith. Hang this piece in a calm room that you use for your own quiet reflection.
