A young native girl was in love with the Moon. She asked to live with the moon on the sky and waited all nights to be taken. One day she saw the Moon reflected on a lake and jumped into it, but drowned. The moon felt guilty and then turned the girl into the most beautiful flower on the rivers of the Amazon forest, the “Vitória-Régia”.

I used a mockup book to illustrate the way I would make a cover from this image.
