For The Eternal Sleep collection, Ken draws inspiration from the poppy flower. Throughout history, poppies have been used as a symbol of sleep, peace and even death. Sleep, because the opium extracted from them is a sedative and death because of the common blood-red color of the poppy flower.

In fact, in ancient Greek and Roman myths, poppies were used as offerings to the dead and were placed on tombstones to symbolize eternal sleep. This symbolism was also evoked in the children’s novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in which the magical poppy field threatened to make the protagonists sleep forever.
