Gladioli were considered the flower of the gladiators and have long been associated with swords. These stately flowers are used in floral displays at special celebrations and are a favorite in country gardens. They are considered old-fashioned flowers, as early American women often planted these flowers at the backs of their flower gardens to create a colorful backdrop to the flowerbed.
The gladiolus flower symbolizes honor and remembrance. It can also symbolize strength of character, faithfulness, sincerity and integrity, infatuation and never giving up. It fits the characteristics of a Leo season.
Known as the stone of compassion, peridot is believed to bring good health, restful sleep and peace to relationships by balancing emotions and mind. This friendly bright green stone also has the uncanny ability to inspire eloquence and creativity; it also brings delight and good cheer.
The background of the painting features a lion golden mandala symbolizes the Leo season.
