The Lotus Prince
Prints are created using 100% archival quality ink on textured cotton paper. Each print is hand-signed on the back and includes a copy of the drawing's story.
This drawing was originally created in pen and ink.
Please note that this print is 6x12 inches. You may need to order a frame, as this is not a standard size. (My recommendation: the online shop, The Cheeky Sheep, has wonderful wood frames in odd sizes).
Story Behind the Drawing
When frogs are young, one of the first stories they are told is that of the Lotus Prince. The Lotus Prince was a frog who, having ventured many miles from his home one day, discovered a flower he had never seen before. He was mesmerized by its beauty, but became disappointed when its petals closed up and submerged themselves underwater. The next morning, he found his sorrows melt away as the flower reemerged from the dark depths and opened again. He found a lotus seed pod, brought it back to his own pond, and planted it in the mud. From that day forward, the Lotus Prince sat upon the seed pod day in and day out, tending to his new lotus garden. Thus, for many frogs, the lotus became a reminder that every day is a new opportunity, as beautiful things can stem from even the murkiest of waters.
