The Lotus Flower has been depicted by human kind since the Egyptians. Today, we may dismiss what the true symbolic significance of a plant is because the stories are distant and difficult to relate to.
So, in order to truly understand who Nefertem was and how the Lotus Flower played a Divine role in his life, let's first examine the anatomy and biology of the Lotus.
According to The Flower Expert, the Lotus plant is an aquatic perennial, native to southern Asia and Australia and most commonly cultivated in water gardens. The plant has its roots firmly in the mud and sends out long stems to which their leaves are attached. The leaves are sometimes, and Lotus flowers always, raised above the water surface. The beautiful and fragrant Lotus flower opens in the morning and petals fall in the afternoon.
