    Suggestions for a complementary quote, a word that these mandala images evoke, or some history or other information about the flower itself are most welcome, as are corrections to my flower identification if I've got it wrong and any other comments you'd care to make.

    I'd also appreciate identification of the specific cultivar, if applicable.

    Thanks,
    - David

    Occult; the somber, but elegant passage from life to death.

    Interesting association, particularly in light of the fact that the flower I'm using as the base image was dying.

    That last one is something else - amazing.

    Thanks, Daniel. It's been a fairly consistent pattern that the most humble flowers yield the most interesting mandalas. It seems fitting, somehow....
