Logo Dear visitor Thank you for visiting page for Lotus and Body. Lotus and Body is a photography project conceptualized by Andrew Tee, a freelance/hobbyist photographer. The project primarily revolves around 2 main subjects, the lotus and the human body. In many cultures, lotus is a symbol of purity and essentially represents the clarity of heart as well as the mind. It also represents strength, good luck, long life as well as honor and respect.  Lotus is also a symbols of 'spontaneous' generation and hence symbolize divine birth. The human body when seen in its most natural form often triggers off a range of thoughts and emotions, particularly those that are sensual and erotic. This sometime even leads to shame and guilt as most people habitually associate a naked body with sex and pornography.  Has there been times when you ponder beyond and view the body as something more spiritual ? I hopes that my works will trigger further exploration of the relationship between the mind and the body.  I would like to end my introduction with this quote : "Your body is precious. It is your vehicle for awakening. Treat it with care."   Andrew Tee
