SAP: Exhibition/Reception: EFFLORESCENCE by Iftikhar Dadi and Elizabeth Dadi

Flowers have also become specific national symbols, even though they grow over a wide geographic range, and can truly be characterized as "contested botanicals".

Other connotations include the positive sense of glowing and being lit, but the word also has negative valences, such as the manifestation of a stain or discoloration.
