A Dozen Red Roses Artwork With extra roses laying close together - a couple side by side - painted softly with an added glow, immersed in water. The artwork is toned in midnight blue to signify passion of the night. There is a long history of red roses and romance, and although this work would look as beautiful as a print for your home, it would also make a wonderful wedding or valentine gift to anyone.
Red Roses - History.
In literature and folklore, red roses have a rich, romantic history. For the past five thousand years, mankind has cultivated roses � a relatively short length of time when you consider the oldest rose fossils are estimated to be thirty-five million years old. Along with figs and vines, roses were an essential crop during the period of early civilisation. At that stage in history, the rose was valued for its practical use. When both rose blossom and hips were found to have medicinal qualities, they were collected in quantity from the wild, before being cultivated in quantity in the early gardens of apothecaries. Although the aesthetic qualities and romantic connotations of roses were not documented until much later, the Romans did use rose petal confetti during special occasions. This is probably the main indication of a connection between roses and events considered worthy of celebration. Some events, however, were more warlike than romantic. During the �Wars of the Roses� in the 15th century, a red rose was the House of Lancaster�s emblem, while the House of York was symbolised by a white rose.
Flower symbolism was well developed in early society in both the east and west. In eastern countries, the lotus flower was associated with love, light and life. In the west the rose represented sweetness, and because of its thorns, the pangs of love. Red roses in particular symbolised romantic attachments. Ironically, red roses now selected by plant breeders for the cut flower trade are as thornless.
