Iris Germanica - Modern Floral
"Iris Germanica" is a stunning encaustic wax painting that captures the essence of the iris flower and its deep cultural significance. The iris is a flower that holds great meaning in German culture, symbolizing faith, hope, courage, wisdom, and admiration. Specific flower colors carry further meanings: purple iris brings a message of wisdom and compliments, while a bouquet of blue iris blossoms speaks of hope and faith.
In Greek mythology, Iris was a messenger from the gods who travelled to earth on a rainbow. Wherever she stepped, flowers sprang up. Iris means 'rainbow'—appropriate when bearded iris comes in a vast array of colors from pure white to purple/black—and nearly every color in between.
The painting is rendered in black and white with elegant gold accents, showcasing the beauty of the iris and its life cycle. The piece depicts the flower bud, flower in full bloom, wilting or withering flower, and seedpod, symbolizing the beginning and end of a life cycle and the promise of new beginnings. Whether you're an admirer of the iris or simply intrigued by its rich cultural significance, "Iris Germanica" is a must-have for any art collection.
