Representing the Rose 4

Another possibility: a well represented rose should tell us about roses. We should learn something about the true nature of roses.

perhaps a true representation of the rose would be a textbook on roses, rather than a picture of a rose.

Or, if it is an image, it should be one which educates us about the nuances of roses. Perhaps an image that has the parts all labelled, and has some description of the life-cycle of the rose.
