Red Flower Painting Biography
Flower fossils dating back 120 million years have recently been found by paleobotanists. More importantly, archeologists have uncovered a grave site in a cave in Iraq that indicates that Neanderthals of the Pleistocene cave-dwelling epoch may have placed bunches of flowers on grave sites. The pollen found at the grave site under study indicates a wide range of flowers were present as part of the burial ritual.In ancient Rome, flower festivals were held in honor of the goddess Flora. Both men and women were awarded flower wreaths for victory in athletic competitions.
For the Romans, the rose was associated with the goddess Venus. Nero, the Roman emperor in the 1st century AD, literally used tons of rose petals to impress his dinner guests. Cleopatra had her living quarters filled with rose petals to impress Marc Anthony. Roman women believed that roses would remove wrinkles if used in poultices. Rose petals were also dropped in wine to counteract drunkenness. Victorious Roman armies would be showered with rose petals as they paraded through the streets.
Rose wreaths have also been unearthed in ancient Egyptian tombs. In addition, ancient Confucian and Buddhist religious documents contain references to roses. The lotus also played an important symbolic role in Egyptian religion.Flower Paintings 4Flowers are the reproductive part of angiosperms or flowering plants. Flowers consist of the exterior petals, the central pistil and the surrounding stamen. Some flowers are self-pollinating, while others require insects, wind or other means of cross-pollination.

Flowers are also an almost endless source of inspiration for poetry, stories and myths. Flower symbolism has existed almost as long as flowers themselves.
