| View Cart ⇗ | Info

The lotus flower has been called the sacred flower of Ancient Egypt. As a product of the life-giving, wealth-bestowing Nile it was symbolic both of that river and of the solar divinities which ruled the river’s inundations and imparted to it its fertility and life-renewing powers.
