A sunlit bouquet of yellow tulips in a crystal vase, seen from an upward angle as if from the perspective of a child. The reflections within the water and ribbed crystal vase together with the fragmented tangle of stalks juxtapose strikingly against the softness of the petals.

The tulip symbolizes perfect love—something we all long for. The yellow tulip allegorically means “There’s sunshine in your smile.”
