the duality of nature as suggested during the Symbolist movement of the 19th century from Charles Baudelaire's 'Les Fleurs Du Mal'. His ode to the anti-heroes: the beggars, the blue collars, the gamblers, the prostitutes, and victims of imperialism. During this period Christians were reluctant to use the rose in funerary arts because of its association with decadence.
"Better to be hated for who you are than loved for who you are not"
