Reminiscing Of A Timeless Love – I thought that merging the monarch butterfly and the pansy in a mandala was the perfect symphony of symbolisms.
The ancient Aztecs believe that the dearly departed souls return as hummingbirds and butterflies. In the Japanese culture butterflies are thought to be representative of young maidens and marital bliss. Butterflies also symbolize: resurrection, transition, celebration, lightness, time and soul.
The flower symbolism associated with the pansy is merriment and you occupy my thoughts. The pansy is also considered a flower of remembrance, togetherness and union. Pansies help evoke fond memories of our loved ones. It is believed if a pansy is placed over someone’s eyes while sleeping, upon waking that person will fall in love with the first person to appear.
