Woman With Lotus – Amina Brewer

Woman With Lotus

Through this piece I wanted to demonstrate the relationship Asian women have with nature. Although it’s a rather plain piece, the solid color background allows the viewer to focus on the woman and the small detail within her. The Lotus in her mouth represents the wisdom and beauty of Asian women. The rabbit in the moon comes from the Korean folktale and represents fertility. Then finally, the blue highlighting in her hair mirrors the flow of water.
