This "Peace" is based on a segment of the larger Floating Lotus mandala.
The Lotus flower flourishes in shallow ponds and near the edges of larger bodies of water. It grows up from the muddy bottom, through water, and then into the air. In this way, the flower, metaphorically as well as literally, connects the three spheres of earthly existence: land, sea and sky, and embraces the metaphorical associations attributed to each.
They open and close in perfect harmony with the ebb and flow of the sun. Its base sits flush upon the water; gently rocking with the surface ripples. In these ways the flower represents effortlessness, direction, and the attainment of beauty. It is a perfect metaphor from which to view the grand unity of all things, and a graceful acceptance of worldly existence.
It is a symbol of absolute purity; it grows from the dark watery mire but is untainted or unstained by it.
