「 花，像 」
「 花，像 」huā xiàng
A flower tribute extends the imagery of commemoration and the act of giving
fresh flowers for well-wishes and condolences is a practice made common. Contrary
to the intent, cut flowers are in their dying process once removed from the main
plant and it is truly quite an ironic idea to send dying matter for well wishes.
Plants as metaphorical devices go way back in art history and devoid of an emotive
face, they have heightened utilities as representational strategies of a human.
