Arropado con el Sol (flor)
Clothed with the sun (flower)

I love a quote from the medieval mystic Mechtild of Magdeberg in which she talks of seeing a vision of "...a woman, clothed with the sun...". I started thinking about this as an image, and it wasn't very far from there to a woman clothed with a sun...flower!
