Water lily Water nymph
In greek myths nymphs were beautiful young maidens with the status minor divinities who lived in places suchs as streams, rivers and lakes.
In the language of flowers the water lily speaks of purity and majesty, and it is the flower emblem for the month of July.

Like artists of ancient Egypt, Japan, Greece, moderns artist have been inspired by beauty of water lilies.
Piano pieces of A. McDowell, paintings of Claude Monet, ...
in "Paradise and the Peri" Thomas Moore wrote of

"Those virgin lilies all the night
bathging their beautes in the lake
that they might rise more fresh and bright
when their beloved sun's awake"
