#6 Exotique eroticMuse
In Victorian times, offering a hibiscus meant that the provider was acknowledging the receiver’s delicate beauty. Doing so our beloved muze equally brought joy and laughter to the spiritual soul of both. A healing injection of delicate bliss, fleeting beauty and personal glory_______.
Five artistic interpretations of our spring muse: the Hibiscus
A picnic in the park
A leaf with a breeze
hibiscus and vanilla
an afternoon tease

Hibiscus and Sparrow
It’s just a moment with the hibiscus in bloom and the sparrow in flight chirping as it does, perhaps; just a moment, perhaps all of it in the stream of being and existence
These beautiful Hibiscusflowers seem to be floating on a springbreeze in this marvellous and inspirational Vlisco fabric.
Reflecting inner beauty
Behold our frail muze, looking at her inner self, searching for insight, as if she were practising ‘Soulfullness’.
