Solomon’s Glory

Even King Solomon robed in all his glory, in his man-made splendor, was not adorned with the beauty of what God creates and provides naturally. If God will provide for the lilies, will He not also provide for us?

Following the format of the Persian carpet, the lilies form the center, the greenery of the leaves spread in a border, and the fringe is a delightful mix of lily pistil and stamen. A small band of purple (symbolic color of royalty) surrounds the lilies. An assortment of cut-out clothes embellish the band like hieroglyphs. Each item stands for a letter of the alphabet, and altogether, spell out a phrase.
