This is an experimental piece and wandering into the surrealist realm. I love roses and everything about them, and for me they symbolise love and peace. My mother had the most beautiful Peace rose by the front door of our childhood home, and she told me the story of its creation. Hooked ever since! I wanted to have the face of the Buddha emerging from the Rose as a symbol of Love, Peace and Compassion – qualities so needed in our world right now.
