This painting tells the story of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. 
Jesus died for us during Easter. This water lily we collect during that time. The water lily is rising underwater to the surface. When it rises to the surface you can see the leaves are shaped like a heart. When I see these heart leaves I know the water lilies are rising from the ground. And the lilies are going to rise up in the water and meet all the water lily leaves shaped like hearts. It is also our bush tucker and the old people love eating them.
