HIGANBANA

The Higanbana "Red Spider Lily'' has positive and negative connotations in Japanese culture. First, it is the flower of death which is ominous. Second, it is the heavenly flower that guides souls into the afterlife.

For me, it represents life which is in blood, fire, passion and beauty that dwells in the dark; seeking, calling and enticing.

A combination of digital painting and collage.
