Original Painting - Abstract Painting - Acrylic Painting - Black and White - Fleur de Lis - Contemporary Art -Textured - 16x16
This abstract art textured painting is very cool, the black and white with a touch of red compliment each other perfectly. It is full of texture and tons of cool details, lines, fleur-de-lis, flowers and textures. The main colour is white with a black wash that shows off the textures. I used a technique that gives it an aged or antiqued look. A very unique piece that would look great in any home decor, cottage chic, shabby chic, urban decor.
The English translation of "fleur-de-lis" (sometimes spelled "fleur-de-lys") is "flower of the lily." This symbol, depicting a stylized lily or lotus flower, has many meanings. Traditionally, it has been used to represent French royalty, and in that sense it is said to signify perfection, light, and life. Legend has it that an angel presented Clovis, the Merovingian king of the Franks, with a golden lily as a symbol of his purification upon his conversion to Christianity. Others claim that Clovis adopted the symbol when waterlilies showed him how to safely cross a river and thus succeed in battle.
