Iris and Pansies stained glass artwork. Bright spring flowers combine to convey the image of love. Artists apply seven separate layers of transparent enamels to the glass to create each work of art. The iris is symbolic of life, hope and the power of light. The delicate pansy is called thought in some languages. With its pentagonal pattern, it represents man, whose symbolic number is five. In the language of flowers this work represents the link between human emotions and the spoken word.
