Visual expressions reflect a Buddhist poem:
“Like the lotus which does not abide in water, like the glowing moon which does not belong to space”; so, the painting – 2 m x 1 m – on white silk it’s a poem in colors.
The Confucian emphasis on the ethical values mingles with Daoist emphasis on the workings of nature.

With a polyvalent religious meaning, Lotus flower is associate with purity and beauty.

Thus, the purity of forms urge us to meditation.
The expressive power of calligraphy and the painted elements of the natural world increase the harmony.
Cecilia represents the gracefulness of the lotus flowers on the surface of water.
Water reflects the sun merging calligraphy with painting.
