I read that Van Gogh saw the night sky as a sort of threshold to eternity. He was inspired, he said, by imagery in the poems by Walt Whitman he was reading: “He sees…under the great starlit vault of heaven a something which after all one can only call God—and eternity in its place above the world.”

The sunflower is a flower of adoration, longevity and a life fulfilled. The poppy symbolizes sleep and dreams. When sunflowers go to bed, they turn their heads away from the sky and hang their heads randomly as do poppies. When the day comes, they follow the sun. This behavior is called phototropism. When the sun goes down, they go to sleep. Just like us.
