In the language of flowers, hollyhock symbolises fruitfulness. To the ancient Egyptians, hollyhocks had connotations with the circle of life. Wreaths of hollyhocks were buried with the mummies to help the dead into their new lives. This drawing is from the 100 Days of Flowers projected completed in 2015.
This is an original drawing created with Faber Castell Polychromos coloured pencils on 250gsm bristol artist paper.
