An auspicious flower in Asia, the lotus symbolizes purity, beauty and nobility. At the rustic level, it stands for abundance, fertility and continuity. It has been a favourite art motif for three millennia in China and India.
The different faces and phases of the lotus are explored in over 200 photographs within this book. Chinese poems that mention the lotus and calligraphic rendition of some poems are included to enrich the presentation.
The book features a Foreword written by eminent scholar Professor Wang Gungwu.
Teoh Eng Soon is a Singaporean gynaecologist who has published several books, including Asian Orchids, A Joy Forever, Orchids in a Garden City, and Lotus in the Buddhist Art of India.
