In the religions of Hinduism and Buddhism, the lotus flower has historically symbolized purity and beauty. These earrings show that a simple outline is all that's needed to evoke these qualities of the lotus.
Graceful teardrop-shaped leaves are captured in a state of delicate unfolding to form full, symmetrical, and perfectly-formed blossoms.
The lowest leaves, their tips pointing downward, help to create the illusion of a mirrored pond upon which the lotus flowers float, their roots extending far down to the river bottom.
