The Meaning of Flowers Series
I am working with the concept of the meaning of flowers, and the use of the angel figure as a symbol for hope. Throughout time flowers have been used as symbols for specific emotions. Although the references are not exact, and many have a variety of meanings, I have chosen those that work well with certain human gestures and expressions. The angels are not meant to be a religious reference but as a symbol for the human spirit and its endless belief in the possible, in spite of the unprovable.
