Bella's Garden - Violet

The Violet is the flower selected for Bella's Garden today, based on the Victorian Language of Flowers.

2016
Bella's flower of the day is the Violet. Not only my Mother's name, but it also represents three ideals according to the Victorian Floriography: modesty, affection and delicate love. White violets, according to several sources, would also mean "Let's Take A Chance On Happiness".
For this collage I pictures Bella seating on a bunch of violet flowers and leaves. Her eyes also hide a beautiful violet spark. I made her a dress with several violet leaves an petals and sometimes the whole flower, as well as a white petticoat. I used vintage chromes/scraps for her tiara, necklace and fan and some baby shoes on her feet. For the frame several Art-Nouveau ceramic tiles and, finally, a beautiful Brazilian butterfly. These butterflies can be seen again flying over the forests in Rio, after having disappeared for a long time due to the commerce of exotic animals. Things seem to be changing for better now, though...
