Alchemy of Music and Words

Aurea takes its name from Catena Aurea Homeri, or the Golden Chain of Homer, a symbol of 18th century esoteric alchemy, which strove for the refinement of the human condition. That alchemy - combining disparate elements into a divine new element

Speaking With The Language Of Flowers
http://www.fbmetaldetectors.com/blog/speaking-with-the-language-of-...

Since ancient times, flowers have been used as a gesture of kindness. We usually gift them to those we care for. We send flowers to show them how special they are, to show appreciation, to celebrate an occasion, or even to sympathize. What we don’t know is that giving certain kinds of flowers, and even their colors, actually have definitions of their own.

The Language Of Flowers

During medieval & Renaissance times, flowers were often given moral meanings. This can be widely seen in art where saints are often shown with flowers that represent or symbolize their virtues. In an edition of Sixteenth Century Journal, Liana DeGirolami Cheney said that “some of the Christian symbols for Virginity or Chastity are the white rose, the myrtle, a vessel or vase, the lily, and the unicorn.”

During the Victorian era, flowers were used initially to create or add emotion. The language of flowers, often called floriography, began being used as a discreet form of communication. In the 18th century, sending coded messages using flowers became popular. Based on Persian Salaam, a Turkish secret language of flowers, a coded bouquet was sent to express feelings of attraction, even love.

A book entirely about flower interpretations by Madame Charlotte de la Tour, “Le Language des Fleurs,” dates back to 1819. Another book was written in 1884, titled “Language of Flowers” by Kate Greenaway, and it is still being used today.

Japan also has their variant of floriography, called “Hanakotoba.” Greeting cards printed in Japan follow the Hanakotoba code, and still use the flower-language in popular culture such as in movies and animation, like the anime show “Wei Kreuz.”
