Resplendent in the sunshine, the bua luang, or "royal lotus," is the most highly prized flower in Thailand. A symbol of purity, the lotus arises unsullied from muddy water. Sensitively depicted on a background of blue-green lily pads, the blossom's beauty and innocence are intensified. A Buddhist, Seksan Sing-on paints the blossom with astonishing realism. "Most of my works show the lotus flower," the artist explains. "When I see the lotus, I meditate on my religious philosophy – it teaches something about the truth of life."
