baby boy on lotus trunk


baby boy on lotus leaf trunk; Ch'ing dynasty; about 120 years old; from Shandong province; collected in China in 2006 by Susan Gilmore and David Anderson

In Chinese Buddhism, the entire lotus, including the flower, leaves and roots, represents purity. The lotus is also a symbol of abundance and fertility in China. People purchase pictures of dancing babies holding lotus leaves and flowers as part of a Chinese folk custom to wish the birth of several boys in succession to a mother.
