Affirmation Everything changes in this world but you.
It's Banksia's season again and I kept seeing these beauties in the market, couldn't help to bring them back home whenever I see them. It's a wonderful object to study, to paint and I especially love the spiritual meaning of it.
Some species of Banksia protect their seeds inside follicles while simultaneously opening up when experiencing fire.
It reminds me that we shall never give up no matter what kind of difficulty we encounter in life. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
Banksia also symbolizes rebirth and new beginnings.
Gumnut stands for healing and protection in the artwork. The term eucalypt originally meaning well (eu) covered (calyptos).
Banksia baxteri, member of the family Proteaceae, also known as 'Baxter's Banksia' and 'Bird's Nest Banksia'. It is endemic to Western Australia. Flowering occurs mid-Summer to Autumn continue until well into May.
Leucadendron, native to Australia and South Africa, are often used to convey an appreciation for simplicity in life. The blossoms are uncomplicated and have a simple appearance to them. They may be used alone or paired with dark green foliage for bouquets.
Simple beauty is one of the most popular meanings for this bloom.
