T :: Gestational dormitories. Routine C-sections. Quintuple embryo implants. Brave New World? Nope, surrogacy tourism. This balanced article touches on the positive (lifting Indian women out of poverty, giving the gift of motherhood to women who can't have kids) and the negatives (industrializing birth, Indian mothers are treatment is somewhat shady). more here.
The concept was growing a flower out of the surrogate's Sari pattern, and have the flower crown a baby (white baby, dark surrogate). Trying to evoke the idea of 'farming' or 'harvesting' therefor the use of a flower, a plant growing upwards to be picked when ready. The baby and surrogate are connected by the flower's stem, obviously a reference to the umbilical cord. Cutting it off wouldn't be painless. Lastly, a flower is a universal form of giving good will, giving a present, which expresses the positive aspect of this exchange.
