Flowers, like the giant hogweed, were one of great significance to the Art Nouveau masters, symbolizing regrowth, rebirth, and regeneration, and so, even though they can technically classified as a weed, flowers like these were honored with a beautiful place of privilege in many a masterpiece during the Art Nouveau period.
