Frozen Lotus Flower

This unique flower frequently appears in both fantasy books and computer games. Often characterized by its magical properties, it is the object of desire of many people. Since I’m a great fan of fantasy, this beautiful flower reminds me of good old gaming times and the fun that I had during that period.
