"The protective flower". Where I live, in Basque Country, this flower has a very special meaning, is our protective flower. The mythology tells that at the begining of time everything was darkness. The humans asked the Mother Earth goddes "Amalur" something to protect them from evil geniuses and elves that lurked in the dark and brought storms and diseases. The Mother Earth goddes "Amalur" gave her doughters the Sun "Eguzki" and Moon "Ilargi". Nonetheless humans were still afraid of moonless nights and asked forma protection again. It was at that moment when "Amalur" gave them the sunflower "Eguzkilore" and told them: "When the evil beings see It, will belive that it is the Sun and they will be scared". Since them, humans began to put the sunflower "Eguzkilore" in the entrances of their homes. The story Tella that if an evil being dared to approach the sunflower "Eguzkilore" had to count each of his petals and little "hairs" to be able to enter. In this way dawn arrived and the evil beings were runing when the first Sun Ray appeared.🌍🌞🌝🌚🌻 Sunflower🌻 Sunflowers🌻 Sunflower Sunflowers Bnw_friday_eyeemchallenge Bnw_sunflower Beautiful In Black And White Euskalherria Euskal Herria Euskadi Euskadigrafias Euskadibasquecountry Euskaditurismo Blackandwhite Black And White Black & White Navarra Navarragrafias Eguzkilore Mythology Close-up Architecture
