It is a real New Zealand kiwi thing as far as I know to have these big lillies out at Christmas time. I can’t recall having them in Australia, maybe they do now.
The origins of this sketch is a discussion about originality & the way the subject matter may or may not matter. I do a lot of ordinary subjects, why not a vase of flowers.
I thought the flowers would suit a red background. It seems a bit much, but I tried several others & nothing worked as well. This was done in one pencil setting, one width, one angle.
