Immortelle: The Everlasting Flower
STORY AND SYMBOLISM: The name Immortelle - ‘everlasting’ came about because it retains its intense sun-filled yellow colour even when dried: their petals will neither fade nor wilt. This is why they were often favoured in the 19th century to make up the funeral wreathes laid at the tomb of a departed loved one… Objects made from immortelles suggest that the Immortelle flowers served as markers of continuity in a world challenged by uncertainty and change, and the flower became a symbol of Immortality through memory.
