Consider the Lily: Lilies in History, Art & Culture : Dr Twigs Way"

"To gild refined gold, to paint the lily: From exquisite 14th century images of the Annunciation and Pre-Raphaelite evocations of a lost Eden, to exotic Tiger Lilies, and Edwardian garden idylls the lily reigns triumphant in art, whilst its many meanings and uses have embedded it in our culture from ancient Crete to Shakespeare and Alice Through the Looking Glass! "
