The Egyptians were likely influenced by Greek mythology and used the iris to symbolise their connections to heaven. By the middle ages, France took up the gauntlet and began to use iris flowers to symbolise royalty and power. In fact, it is the iris that inspired the fleur-de-lis, the National symbol for France.
The Bearded Iris shape and patterns make this flower a most fascinating subject This is my interpretation of this most gorgeous flower. I wanted this piece to be bold, bright and happy. I chose the iris as it has so much interest when admired either in the garden or in a vase.
This piece of art will definitely capture the attention of all who gaze upon it. This timeless flower setting will suit both traditional and contemporary environment, whether it be hung in the grand foyer of a large home or in a cosy lounge or bedroom. The “in-situs” in this gallery depict the many variations of settings this magnificent acrylic piece feels at home in.
