The Calla Lily is sensual, graceful, innocent, and a perfect addition to your home.
Throughout history, the elegant calla lily has been depicted in paintings of the Virgin Mary or Angel of Annunciation and often associated with holiness, faith and purity. In the later part of the 19th century, the calla lily became a recurring motif in works by important painters and photographers, particularly Georgia O’Keeffe. When Freud provided a sexual interpretation of the calla lily’s form, he added a new level of meaning to its depictions in art.
