Symbols - What does heaven look like

Peony

The Peony shares its symbolism with all flowers.  The symbolic attainment of the ascending path up the soul is often seen in visions and also symbolically represented in texts as a peony.  Particularly in cultures such as the Chinese and Japanese cultures, the peony takes on much of the same emanings as a Rose.

When seen in a symbolic garden, in most cultures it is a symbol of perfection. 

It is also associated with love and the heart.  The alternative symbol used is the lotus.
