Pink Water Lily Mug

Lotus Nelumbo

Kate Carlyle's water lily coffee mugs are functional objets d'art. Fill one with a fine coffee from J. Martinez & Company, close your eyes and journey to an enchanted land of remarkable and subtle flavours. The water lily as an ornamental form and a symbol is important in Egypt and countries of Hindu and Buddhist obedience.

In Buddhism the lotus throne stands for purity and divine birth. Like the lotus, which germinates under water and rises to the surface to unfold so too is the Buddha born into the impure world, but through his enlightenment rises above it. The lotus takes the form of a sexual symbolism in Tantric Buddhism. The lotus stands for the feminine, hence generative, principle through which, in union with the masculine principle, represented by the thunderbolt, the phenomenal world comes into being. In Buddhism the fully open lotus preserves a strong solar character, its leaves being obviously identifiable with the rays of the sun, its stem being a kind of sacred cosmic pivot.
