Pop-art Calligraphy "Serenity In Lotus Flower"

Most deities of Asian religions are depicted as seated on a lotus flower. In Buddhist symbolism, the lotus represents purity of the body, speech, and mind as if floating above the muddy waters of attachment and desire. 
According to legend, Gautama Buddha was born with the ability to walk, and lotus flowers bloomed everywhere he stepped (Wikipedia). Lotuses in Hinduism symbolize prosperity, beauty, fertility, eternity and eternal youth (Jane Reinbold).
The ancient Egyptians used the lotus to symbolize the sun and rebirth (Reinbold). In  Egypt the Lotus is seen everywhere in ancient Egyptian tombs and temples, often held in the hands of gods and royalty. The Lotus grows in muddy waters, yet emerges from them pure and unblemished. Accordingly, the Lotus is the symbol of resurrection, purity, serenity and peace.
