This mandala note card is a Milkweed Rising exclusive and is printed from an original photographic illustration. The mass of Siberian iris that inspired this piece bloom in all their glory each May at the end of my driveway. They get more spectacular each year as the clump of blade-shaped leaves expands, sending up more and more beautiful purple blooms. Iris is a very special and revered flower. Almost every culture acknowledges the special attributes of this plant. The leaf is said to be the blade that entered Mother Mary’s heart at the Crucifixion of Christ. The leaves are also associated with a trifecta of positive human attributes: faith, wisdom, and valor. In Chinese tradition, the flowers are celebrated as the “dancing spirit of summer”. I share with you my own dancing spirits of summer…may they evoke joy and peace, always.
This blank card is 5″ wide and 7″ tall (portrait orientation) and is printed on premium 100 lb. white matte paper, suitable for framing. A white envelope is included. The original color photo and story of the piece are printed on the back of the card. This is a wonderful birthday, Easter, or everyday card.
Please note the watermark shown in the photo does not appear on the printed card.
