(Painting depicts the South African national flower the Protea)
Protea was named after Proteus, the son of the greek God Poseidon.
Proteus was sought out for his insights but in order to avoid people he would change shape and colour . Proteas symbolises diversity, transformation and courage. We need to find it in ourselves to adapt to new challenges. While enjoying a gorgeous glass of his Shiraz consider how you will enable your transformation.
