Fat buds of ruby-red amaryllis erupt above starry bouvardia flowers, decorated with gold cord threaded with blue-purple beads. Rich red roses would look equally opulent. The clear ruby glass vase with its rounded calabash shape echoes the curved silhouette of the flower bouquet, and strongly defines the Byzantine trend.

[Inset] Samarkand in detail - the gold of the cord reflects the colour of the amaryllis stamens.
