Testament Taras Shevchenko Origami Lotus Flower


Testament by Taras Shevchenko is one of the most famous poems in Ukraine, and is known around the world. Written in 1845, Testament is an ode to the beauty of Ukraine and the love Ukrainians have for their country.

Testament (Zapovit)
When I am dead, bury me
In my beloved Ukraine,
My tomb upon a grave mound high
Amid the spreading plain,
So that the fields, the boundless steppes,
The Dnieper's plunging shore
My eyes could see, my ears could hear
The mighty river roar.

When from Ukraine the Dnieper bears
Into the deep blue sea
The blood of foes ... then will I leave
These hills and fertile fields --
I'll leave them all and fly away
To the abode of God,
And then I'll pray .... But until that day
I nothing know of God.

Oh bury me, then rise ye up
And break your heavy chains
And water with the tyrants' blood
The freedom you have gained.
And in the great new family,
The family of the free,
With softly spoken, kindly word
Remember also me.
Taras Shevchenko

I print out the text and hand-cut it to size. I then hand paint every petal and leaf with watercolors to bring the lotus flower to life. It is painted in two shades of blue, as well as yellow, to represent the Ukrainian flag.
