The elegant scallop shaped Kamal is one of the oldest polyvalent symbols in Asian culture, a rhythmic pattern signifying expansion of the soul.

The lotus or Kamal symbol is central to spiritual beliefs in Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. Signifying the unfolding petals of a lotus flower, the rhythmic repeat pattern reflects the expansion of the soul, purity and creation. Growing unstained out of the mud, it tells a story of simple transcendence.
