There is a style of art known as trompe l’oeil which is French for ‘deceive the eye’. It is a technique involving rendering realistic imagery in order to create the optical illusion that the objects appear in three dimensions. I happen to believe that the entire universe is a trompe l’oeil painting (and boy, did we get sucked in!). It is through our desires that every new scene evolves, as represented by the orange rose which symbolizes desire and enthusiasm. What is written on the scroll is our individual and personal story that gives us the motivation to create an ever evolving living painting.
