What’s in a lotus?

Art for Akanksha Square Dark Wood Tray - Circular LotusesA lotus changes the way a muddy pond is perceived. To us, it’s a gentle reminder to rise above our circumstances; to rise till the focus changes from our backgrounds to our capabilities.

No wonder, this graceful flower is one of our favourite motifs. Make it yours too with this tray showcasing the inner potential in bloom.
