If you think this is a simple design of leaves and roses, think again.
This piece channels the style of its illustrator Simon Oxley, who finds beauty in simplicity. Born in Japan but raised in the UK, Simon’s works fuse Eastern and Western elements to form truly unique pieces of art.
The rose is an ancient symbol of love and beauty, and was sacred to Greek goddesses like Venus and Aphrodite. Red roses are an expression of love and passion while white roses connote purity. Red and white roses placed together, like in this piece, are a representation of unity.
This theme of unity is emphasized with the leaf. In Eastern Asia, a leaf with a branch symbolizes camaraderie and individuals co-operating in a collective effort, while a leaf on its own represents prosperity and happiness.
Taken together, this piece expresses love, unity, purity, and happiness…all in one charming frame.
