Iris-The Messenger

by Carolinesimone June. 03, 2012 2326 views

Slowly getting back into doing some shots…. and was not going to let a bit of rain on this first Sunday of June stop me :)

The Iris got its name from the Greek goddess of the rainbow, Iris. She was the messenger of the gods, and would ride on the rainbow to and from Earth in her beautiful, multicolored robes. She acted as the link between heaven and earth. It is told that irises were planted at the graves of women. People believed that this would summon the goddess to guide the souls in their journey to heaven.
