This lesson teaches you how to make this delicate flower, which resembles a lotus flower. By weaving the petals and shaping them you create the impression that the flower is in bloom.
The lotus is an ancient symbol. Often used as an example of divine beauty and purity. Its unfolding petals suggest the expansion of the soul. The growth of its pure beauty from the mud of its origin holds a benign spiritual promise. It is said that when Buddha died, lotus flowers blossomed everywhere he had walked in his lifetime. The lotus flower represents long life, health, honor and good luck.
