Sunflower Queen (CANVAS 24x48")
Acrylic paint, glitter, faux sunflowers on stretched canvas
The symbolic sunflower meaning deals with beauty, delight, hope and joy. The sunflower moves itself in the most direct position in front of the sun so it can get the maximum sun rays. This is symbolic of spiritual faith, & worship because we follow our belief system as the sunflower moves to face the life-giving rays of the sun. The sunflower is often associated with the orisha Oshun. As a yellow flower, the sunflower can be compared to the solar-plexus chakra (Manipura).This chakra (and its color) governs intellect, and is a central force of perception as well as self-awareness and personal evolution.
