About The Artwork:
Embrace the marriage of beauty and strength with "Efflorescence," a breathtaking black-and-white illustration featuring an iconic lobster adorned in delicate roses.
The lobster has been a timeless symbol of strength, endurance, and resilience. In ancient Greek mythology, the goddess Aphrodite was said to have been born from the sea, emerging from her bed in the form of a giant lobster. This mythological representation renders the lobster a powerful symbol of fertility and femininity.
The roses that adorn the lobster's pinchers and the tail are a timeless symbol of love and beauty in many cultures worldwide. It is a reminder of the delicacy and fragility of life, representing passion, new beginnings, joy, and femininity. In Ancient Greece, roses were associated with Aphrodite; in Ancient Rome, they were used to describe Venus.
This merger of symbols illustrates that even for something that appears delicate and fragile, strength lies beneath the surface. This beautiful piece is perfect for adding a touch of surrealism to your home or office decor.
"Be crumbled. So wild flowers will come up where you are. You have been stony for too many years. Try something different. Surrender." — Rumi
