||Lotus Belgian Chenille tapestry features the gorgeous red lotus flower. The symbol of purity, health and life, the lotus is revered not only for its beauty, but also for its symbolic mysticism. The lotus flower grows deep in the mud, rising out of the muddy water only to bloom. When night falls, it closes up and returns to the deep. As such, the flower never touches any impurities in the mud. It’s not hard to see why the lotus is perceived as a spiritual entity, not only by Eastern cultures but the Egyptians as well; who believed it symbolized creation and rebirth.
