Flowers have been used throughout history, and fossils of them have been found dating back over 120 million years. Archaeologists discovered a gravesite in Iraq, which indicates that Neanderthals once placed, bunches of flowers on gravesites. The pollen found at different gravesites show a wide range of different flowers were used as part of ancient burial rituals.
Artwork is often chosen with flower symbolism in mind. Monet is famous for water lilies, George O’Keefe is known for her sensuous calla lilies. Many popular artists of camellia art prints include Pamela Gladding, Harold Silverman, J J Jang, Richard Henderson, Suzanne Nicoll and Amy Trebella.
