Artist's description:

Ophelia, immortalised in John Everett Millais iconic painting was destroyed by her grief yet the painting is a work of beauty and serenity as she floats in the stream with her posy broken and scattered about her.

Shimmering in different shades of gold in different lights through the eight layers of gold paint marked with the flowers in Ophelias posy, each chosen by her for it's meaning and symbolism following her devastation at the deathof her father

Hamlet Act II Scene IV

"There's rosemary, that's for rememberance; pray, love, remember: and there's pansies,that's for thoughts."
"There's fennel for you, and columbines; there's rue for you; and here's some for me; we may call it herb of grace o' Sundays.O! you must wear your rue with a difference. There's a daisy; I would give you some violets, but they withered all when my father died....."
