Thorn of the Rose
About this creation
Had this idea for a rose. It's kind of a blocky rose, but I think it's pretty good lookin' also it was a whole heck of a lot cheaper than a real one. No I just need 11 more...

I must thank Fritz K, he is my goto guy for vigs. Also my sibling they always help me make those tough decisions.

But wait.. whats that red stuff supposed to be? It's blood. Some poor soul pricked themselves on the thorn.

360, and a poem for your viewing pleasure.


Silken pedals in the sun do gleam
Beauty from this flower does abound
And seems in the warm rays to beam
Beauty equal can't be found
A compliation of red and green
makes this a wonderful scene.

This beautiful red flower
A thing of wonder and awe
Does below hold the power
Of a razor sharp bear claw
Thorns down below the rose
Prick, swiftly blood flows

Is the beauty of the rose tainted
For the thorn that lies below?
Or is this thinking antiquated?
Is the thorn there predators to slow?
What would the beauty be without a thorn?
The flower would be ripped and torn.

Beauty without pain would not be
The flower would not last
Nor can Pain be the only thing we see,
or death would come to fast
If from flower to thorn were they all
A brier patch before us would sprawl

The beauty of the pain
and the pain of the beauty
Come together for our gain
and our essential duty
To neither one ignore
Whilst the other we abhor

Vig base without the rose

I made the base so it looks like it's floating

Thorn of the rose. It may not be the right color, but it looks better than a 1 x 2 roof triangle.

Thanks. I think it would be fun to make a bouquet out of these with different colors and such.
