In my piece, I used a skeleton and plants to symbolize the growth of the soul and personality over time. I used Victorian Era flower language as a reference when choosing the plants. Heather for protection, lilac for first love, angelica for inspiration, thyme for activity, petunia to never despair, rose for courage and self-love. I believe the way a person's soul can grow and evolve over time is extraordinary. For me, the characteristics represented in the flowers aid the soul's growth.
