“The rose and the thorn, the sorrow and the gladness. All linked together” -Saadi. This special artwork created by Maria Therese Persson is a close up of one of the
most enchanting flowers in nature’s repertoire. This alluring portrayal of the flower most linked with feminism is an honorary tribute to the appealing women living amongst us in our every day lives. My art work is a love letter to the beautiful, unique, brave and bad-ass women struggling and dealing with surviving ovarian cancer and their courageous families behind them.
Like the rose, women are the origins of beauty and the symbol of love -a metaphorical illustrations which my creation greatly represents. I dedicate this
beautifully painted rose with love, sisterhood, admiration and my deepest respect to women whom I know have survived cancer.
“I’m sending you a rose of love”
