The Egyptians relied on inspiration from the natural world for decorative motifs. The main motifs were developed from plants which also played an important role in their lives. The blue lotus flower became a symbol of the sun and the resurgance of life, the plant was also used for medicinal purposes creating a feeling of well-being, euphoria and ecstasy. Blue lotus motifs occur abundantly on wall-paintings and they are frequent motifs on jewellery, glazed bowls and domestic objects. The motifs in this design have been taken directly from Egyptian designs in the conventionalised form, and the colours have been inspired by the blue lotus flower itself.

Exclusive to the British Museum, a silk scarf featuring a pattern of Egyptian lotus flowers.

The motifs featured on this powder blue silk scarf have been taken directly from authentic Egyptian artwork, with the colour inspired by the blue lotus flower itself.

The Egyptian blue lotus flower, also known as the Egyptian blue water lily, grew in abundance along the Nile River, and is often found represented in ancient Egyptian art and sculpture. Lotus flowers were linked to the concepts of death and rebirth, due to the petals closing at night and reopening each morning, and were often used for medicinal purposes.

A beautiful gift for a lover of Egyptian art.
