Beauty Within Death

In hopes to express respect and gratitude for the recent passing of my grandfather, I've decided to create this piece. Incorporating some elements from my culture to represent respect for the dead. The lotus flowers I've folded are symbols of commemoration and condolences; while the purple chrysanthemums also serve as symbols of respect. This is a portrayal of a significant event in my life, as it was my first encounter with the passing of my relative.
