Frederick Watts portrait - 'Choosing' was the inspiration for this design (National Gallery - London)

The painting depicts his 17 year old wife Ellen choosing between the sweet smelling Violets and the luscious Camellias. 

Her symbolic decision ushers in a sunset over their year-long marriage. 

Suryasta is Sanskrit for 'sunset'.
