These Calla Lily's have so much meaning to me. I truly believe this is a symbol of a new adventure and the vision and truth to all women. The Calla Lily represents Magnificent and overwhelming beauty. For some Resurrection and rebirth, this beauty returns every year after winter.
Faith and purity, especially in the Christian religions. Overcoming challenges, since the cut flowers can start regrowing in a vase and survive frosts.
The liveliness and innocence of youth. This represents not only myself but all of you beauties.

Diego Rivera, Calla Lily Vendors, 1943, oil on canvas, 150 x 120 cm, private collection, Mexico.
Mexican painter Diego Rivera, 1886-1957, is known for his bold large-scale socio political murals depicting Mexican agriculture, industry and culture that led to the revival of fresco painting in Latin America, also referred to as muralism. These huge murals reflect a genuinely native subject matter and personal style. The Indians, peasants, factory workers and conquistadores that Rivera depicted are solid, outlined and somewhat stylized human figures, set in crowded spaces and enlivened with bright, bold colours. Although robust and monumental they are also lyricial and at times melancholic. This famous work depicts two kneeling peasant girls with long dark braids and bare feet and a man wearing a sombrero. One of the girls and the man are holding a bundle of white flowers in a basket. The other girl is tying a blue ribbon around the basket. The white flower is a calla lily and is an example of Mexico's beautiful flora. Rivera painted the flower many times. He featured it in frescoes and on canvas depicting peasants who carry them in baskets or hold them in their arms. They usually are gathered in enormous bunches, with a scale that almost seems to overtake the human figures. Many believe that Rivera was making a political statement with paintings like Calla Lily Vendors and wanted to show the importance of the ordinary working class. Others believe they are much more a symbol of Mexico’s culture in general and Rivera was inspired by Xochimilco with its flower markets, the borough where Rivera lived nearby.
