"Known as the beloved jewels of the aquatic world, “Water lilies” reside in the water with their special adaptability trait which allows them to survive in a stagnant pond. What stands out to the eyes are the pink and purple flowers living in calm waters while swaying in the breeze. Its vibrant personality draws the attention of a red-spotted beetle resting patiently on a giant green yellowish lily pad. The sweet and innocent beauty of the lily flowers symbolises hope, purity, and associates with the stillness of the little insect, creating a moment of unity and peace to the surrounding ambience."
