Iwachu Incense Burner - Red Lotus Flower
Burn your favourite Japanese incense on this elegant cast iron burner!
The lotus flower represents the purity of body and soul. From a metaphorical point of view, the muddy waters where the lotus grows symbolise attachment and carnal desires and its immaculate flower the promise of salvation.The legend tells that when Buddha was born, he started to walk and at each step a lotus flower appeared on the ground.
The sacred lotus is also associated with longevity: seeds found in the Liaoning Chinese province germinated after remaining dormant for more than 1.300 years!
