❁ May's Challenge at :iconda-lovers:

I'm happy to anounce our eighth contest! :happybounce:

This time I come up with something that's perfect for the upcoming summer!:D

The Flower of my Heart!Sunflower Base Heart Test 

:bulletgreen:Our eighth challenge will be about SUNFLOWERS!
Icon - Sunflower 
:bulletred:This is what you will have to do:

:bulletyellow:Your artwork must contain a SUNFLOWER!The flower must be big and noticable!

:bulletblue: It can be fantasy,dark,emotional,even horror,but it MUST have a sunflower in it.

:bulletorange:Please describe shortly your artwork in the description.

:bulletgreen:Here you can read about the meaning of sunflowers.

:bulletblue:English version:

While they are stunningly beautiful, they also are rich in history and meaning. Sunflowers symbolize adoration, loyalty and longevity. Much of the meaning of sunflowers stems from its namesake, the sun itself.

They are unique in their ability to provide energy in the form of nourishment and vibrance, an attribute which mirrors the sun and the energy provided by its heat and light.

Artists throughout history loved the sunflower’s unique splendor—those of the Impressionist era were especially fixated on the flower. The use of sunflower images as religious symbols has also been documented in some native societies.

Wild sunflowers are often photographed with their tall stalks and bright petals stretched towards the sun. This interesting behavior, known as phototropism, inspired a motif that has appeared in many ancient works.

Today, sunflowers remain a highly recognized flower, admired for its sunny charm and delightful disposition. These beauties are also still sourced for their seeds, as well as oils used for cooking and skin emollients. For a flower that reflects so many of the sun’s positive characteristics, it isn’t surprising that people enjoy basking in the sunflower’s warming glow so much.


:bulletred:Spanish version:

Este es un símbolo de la fe espiritual, y la adoración porque seguimos nuestro sistema de creencias como el girasol se mueve para hacer frente a los rayos vivificantes del sol. De color amarillo significa la vitalidad e inteligencia. Es un símbolo de la felicidad también.

Girasol: "Eres preciosa". En el lenguaje de las flores el girasol significa: "te admiro". El amarillo significa "eres mi sol. Solo tengo ojos para ti, y como el girasol, yo me giraré siempre hacia ti" y el naranja es la fidelidad en el amor junto con la admiración.

El girasol se mueve en la posición más directa frente al sol para que pueda obtener los máximos rayos de sol.

El girasol como símbolo también puede representar la fe inquebrantable que guía al alma a la más alta sintonía espiritual. También son un símbolo de buena suerte, riqueza y ambición.

Como es una flor amarilla, el girasol se puede comparar con el chakra del plexo solar (Manipura). Este chakra (y su color) gobierna el intelecto, y es una fuerza central de la percepción y conciencia de sí mismo y la evolución personal. El girasol podría ser un símbolo útil en la meditación como un medio para reforzar la seguridad y la confianza

Dar girasoles para alguien que está trabajando en conseguir una meta y necesita una gran oportunidad en su vida.

Son también un excelente regalo de inauguración con el que el receptor abraza nuevas oportunidades en forma de casa y hogar.
