Iris the artists favourite flower – a magical flower that earned its name from the ancient Greek Goddess Iris, a messenger to the gods who was thought to use the rainbow as a bridge between heaven and earth. The ancient Greeks were said to believe rainbows were actually the flowing, multi-colored robes of Iris. Others believed the beautiful multi-colored flowers were also part of her robe or the flowing veil from her dress. Thus, these flowers were named to honor the Rainbow Goddess and bring favor upon the earth. Iris flowers are often used in perfumes, and have antiseptic properties.
