Auspicious Aurora

Auspicious Aurora – The title of this design is inspired the Chinese symbolism of the sunflower and that they consider the sunflower propitious. Aurora is the Roman goddess of the dawn and the personification of the dawn. In Latin aurora translate to dawn.

The sunflower is the Greek symbol of Clytie, a water nymph, who turns into a sunflower after grieving over the loss of her love, Apollo. Clytie, now in the form of a sunflower, is always facing the sun, looking for Apollo's chariot to return in the hope she is reunited with her love. In Chinese symbolism, the sunflower represents long life, good luck and is considered very auspicious. It's yellow color signifies vitality and intelligence as well as happiness. Sunflowers also symbolize adoration, loyalty and longevity. The sunflower is also a flower essence of the Solar Plexus chakra.
