The Peony is such a beautiful flower that's out for just a brief moment each year.
This peice is inspired by Lux Aeterna from Mozart's Requiem in D Minor, his last work. It speaks of beauty and seeming fragilty, but also of enduring strength.
About the artwork Beeonies, or Lux Aeterna
The peony is named after Paeon (also spelled Paean), a student of Asclepius, the Greek god of medicine and healing. Asclepius became jealous of his pupil; Zeus saved Paeon from the wrath of Asclepius by turning him into the peony flower.
