For me, the lotus is the most beloved plant in every respect. The leaves and flowers that open in a circle on which both Buddha and frogs suit to stay, the buds with a savory scent, and the simple appearance of the stems that grow smoothly. Since it is aquatic, light can be transmitted coolly when looking up from the bottom of the water, and a rhythm of shape with the water surface as the background is created when looking down from the sky. This must be why it is loved as a motif of ancient and modern religions and arts.

蓮はあらゆる点において、最も愛すべき植物です。お釈迦様もカエルも乗せたくなる円形に開いた葉と花、馥郁たる香りをはらんだ蕾、すうっとのびる茎のシンプルな有様。水生であることから、水底から見上げれば涼やかに光を透過し、空から俯瞰すれば水面を背景とした形状のリズムが生まれます。古今の宗教、芸術のモチーフとして愛される所以でしょう。
